This wide ranging museum is well worth a visit, sadly as it is franchised to volunteers there has to be a charge BUT it is still well worth the cost for the experience. Make sure you make time to spend in the Victorian kitchen.

Museum features lots of clocks, lace machines, steam engines- mainly sources from the area, pride of the local industry many years ago. Lace machine gets turn on from time to time. Clocks are running. Some old bike and motorbikes. Small but nice.

Entrance for £2 for students and concessions, £3 for adults. Couldn’t think of anything that is better value in Nottingham or elsewhere. Plenty to keep everyone entertained of all ages from motorbikes to lace making and telephones to steam engines. Staffed by lots of volunteers,...More
