Although not the biggest museum i have been to, it was really exciting to see the machines in there being brought to life by passionate elderly staff, that were very helpful. Lovely place, and when you're ready you can ho out and wonder around beautiful park or go to natural history museum nearby.

On a busy Saturday around the park, the museum wasn't, its like people can't see its here, for only £3 (on my own this time) i had a thoroughly enjoyable visit, had a play with some old carpentry tools (under supervision) and had an enjoyable history lesson in the Steam room, well recommended. Must visit on a Sunday to see the Steam room in full action.

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, not too much reading to do and some hands on things for the kids. Definitely recommend you visit and a shop and cafe just round the corner too!

We took a relatively short bus ride from the City Centre to the gates of Wollaton Park and enrolled up to The Courtyard adjacent to Wollaton Hall where the Industrial Museum is situated.

First and foremost, I would happily pay more money to enter this place has now been inside and seen and experienced it. The staff were brilliant and very informative and what's more, all of us in our group had a thoroughly great few hours looking at the exhibits and interacting.

Yes, the kids can dress up and immerse themselves in Victorian times, and we adults were in awe at how much important industry was based around the East Midlands.

Well worth travelling out of the city centre to see or even making a special trip to Nottingham for. And obviously great value for money...so reasonable donation left in a donation box because the volunteers here work hard to keep it all going.

A big thanks to the staff for making our day :)

My kids have visited wollaton Hall many times over the last 10 years and every visit as they grow older becomes more informative for them. New discoveries are made with every visit especially now as teenagers wanting to seek a career in engineering.
An absolute must if you have kids eager to learn how things work.
