Their steam engine exhibits and the collection of cars and motorcycles keep me coming back time and again.

“Cobbles and history...”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

This place really should have more of a frontal position in tourists' handbooks of the area around Bradford- it is a more "working" museum than Salts' mill which is also within the district's vicinity and you really can get a feeling of what it may have been like to live and work in this mill area years ago. There are cottages designed to look like the real thing- like stepping back in time, there is a really marvelous car collection- local Jowetts etc, you can see what working looms looked like and learn about a time which after all was not THAT long ago. Very interesting, underrated- and so great as you can still get in for free ! (not many places do this any more eh?)I am told that there were working shire horses also based at this museum but for some reason they are no longer there... a great education- go on go and learn...

“Average”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

used to come here a lot as a child, it was fun when they had the working horses and opened up the houses to look around. bit disappointing now as it is not as good as it used to be, but the christmas market is great each year so it is worth a visit for that

“treasure trove”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Can't believe this place is free to visit - it's wonderful for all the family. Shame that the horses have gone though but still enjoyed our visit.

“Like looking back in time”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

And very interesting place to spend a few hours it was like looking back in time with the mill workers houses looking like the tenants had just gone to work,it is an ideal place to visit if you have a day to spare plenty to look at
