Was staying in Burnley and decided to visit the museum. It took 48 mins to travel by train to Bradford Interchange and then caught the local bus No 660 to the museum which drops you right outside. Journey time 15 mins First of all the museum is FREE to enter and you will find enough items of interest that will... More

We knew this place would be good because family recommended it, but we were BLOWN AWAY with the quality of what was on show. It's no 'world marvel' but the experience and staff were just great. Straight on arrival we heard the rumblings of machinery starting upstairs and, to our delight, the old machinery was showing how the place would... More

This is a very interesting place to go for all the family. We loved the old street and houses showing how people lived in the past.( how things have changed). All the old machinery showing how cloth was made is brilliant. Well worth a visit.

Took my granddaughter here a few weeks ago. She loved it. Nice old building and plenty to keep her amused. Then I found where they keep the old cars, man, I was excited. Jowett cars I remember from my early childhood where a neighbour had a Jowett. An excellent facility but could do with a decent cafeteria.

Well presented collection of 1800's steam engines, machine tools, spinning and weaving machines and printing. Plus some local built vehicles. Much of the equipment runs on different days of the week. Check before you go to see specific machines running. Great staff and its free (but leave a donation to keep them going)

Nestled in the suburbs of Bradford this museum captures elements of the areas industrial heritage. From photographs to machinery, homes to mill buildings this attraction brings to life how Bradfordians lived in the not too distant past. I will be going back again.

A very good museum with a lot of interesting exhibits especially the mill machinery the old cottages and the range of Jowitt motor vehicles on display. Its a little hidden away and probably difficult to find without a sat nav but worth the effort if you have not got one. Its also a model of how to economise by running... More

So very interesting,showing life years ago with homes from years ago,surprising young children.There used to be the heavy horses that were so beautiful,rides on them or their carts were exciting,but not there now.The working mills,so very informative,especially if someone there to talk you through it all.
