Free day out

Interesting free day out. Favourite part is the cottages all decorated from different decades. Definitely worth a visit.

Bradfords industrial heritage is on show here in all its glory. especial attention is paid to the textile history of the city but there is also a good deal of engineering material on display. Car park and Cafe on site. Allow 2 to 3 hours.

I have lived close by to the museum all my life and have been many times in the past. Decided to take my children for a look round yesterday as one of them had never been and they loved it. Its a brilliant place with lots to do and look at and combines inside and outside. The boys loved all... More

Visited the museum today with my 10 year old nephew, only live 8 miles away but totally unaware of this amazing place. First stop the Blacksmith's forge - were thoroughly engrossed - his demonstration and engagement with his audience were superb. Set the scene for the rest of the visit. The Manager's house also impeccable. Will be recommending the museum... More

Just been to this amazing museum. I learnt so much from the visit and so did my girls. Lots of history about how Bradford grew industrially. Will visit again

Dropped in whilst visiting Bradford, great day out for the whole family, very informative and best of all it is free! We have something similar in my city and it is £8 per head.

I've lived in West Yorkshire all my life and had never heard of this place but I'm really glad I now have. Really interesting and well put together.

We visited today after a trip to the media museum. There was a steam punk event on which added some interest although their stalls did cluster some of the walkways and seeing dead animal skins for sale was not my cup of tea. The museum was free and interesting. Free parking and only 12 mins by car from the media... More

Ive visited this museum several times and always find it interesting from looking at the old mill machinery to the transport gallery with its collection of Bradford Jowett cars and tram and trolley bus then a tour of the managers house next door which is quite opulent compared to the back to back terrace houses across the yard which i...
