About
Discover the people, companies and industries that made Nottingham famous around the world. Nottingham Industrial Museum has five galleries each relating to a key Nottinghamshire industry: textiles, transport, communication, mining and power. We have many wonderful artefacts and exhibits including a working Basford Beam engine and an original Thomas Humber Bicycle. And we are working to get more artefacts into working condition, so you can admire the local ingenuity and skills that went into Nottingham Lace and other exports. Through our collection, we encourage our visitors to investigate Nottinghamshire’s rich industrial heritage. We are entirely run by volunteers who are on hand to show you around and answer your questions. Adults £3 - Concessions and Students £2 - Kids go free - see website for discounted entry offers

Fantastic value for money and fabulous staff.

Fantastic independent museum.
The museum is a series of rooms / areas about the local industry, transport and the Victorian era and it's fantastic engineering.
Each area has one or more volunteers who are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. If you have a genuine interest in history and Victorian engineering, make sure you take time to speak to them. I guarantee you will learn so much more than just looking at the exhibits and reading about them. The lovely lady in the Victorian kitchen even had biscuits made to a Victorian recipe.
This is the great value for money too at just £4 per adult.

Worth visiting!

I went there for the textile gallery where lace and knitting machines are displayed. The experience was wonderful! The curators had been very helpful and patient, explaining how the machines work and gave me a lot of information of the lace and knitting industries back then. They even played different videos for me so I know more about how the machines operate! Worth visiting!

Well worth a visit
Aug 2020 • Couples
If your at Wollaton hall/park then it’s well worth a visit here! Although things are not labelled very well, there is some fantastic pieces of history that you very rarely see in other places similar. It’s all volunteer run, and very cheap admission.

Excellent and informative visit

Contained interesting exhibits about lace making, clocks and communications, nail making and steam power. What really made it all come to life was the enthusiasm of the volunteers who were all only too happy to give more information about their specialist areas, which made it a fascinating visit. Nice cafe also.

Fascinating place

Very interesting museum featuring lots of Nottigham related items. There are steam sections, lace, transport and communications. The guides are the ones who make it really interesting though.

Little known museum well worth a visit. Stacks of machinery, bikes, cars, etc relaying Nottingham giants past history - Raleigh, Players, Boots, Lace market etc. Much more to this place than first meets the eye. Guides were very helpful and informative. And inexpensive too. A really good, informative and entertaining place to visit!

Nice day out
Nov 2019
Nottingham Industrial Museum is a nice day out. I was lucky enough to visit on a Sunday so I got to witness the steam engine in full effect. Came with my younger sibling and they enjoyed it too.
