Bradford's Industrial Revolution

What can you see at Bradford Industrial Museum?

Start your visit to the museum in the You are Here Gallery on the ground floor of the main building and explore the history of several generations of settlers and their influence on Bradford. Here you'll find the Coat of Many Cultures.

 

The museum houses examples of machinery which were used in all stages of textile production, including combing, spinning, weaving and finishing. In the Spinning Gallery you can see how worsted yarn was prepared from raw wool. Hear recorded stories from mill workers in the Weaving Gallery and see how spun yarn was prepared for the looms and how weaving was carried out, with our live demonstrations. Experience the sounds and smells of the engines which once powered mills throughout Yorkshire in the Motive Power Gallery. The museum host one of the largest printing galleries that still operates every Wednesday

 

Outside the main building, Moorside House and Gaythorne Row are furnished houses showing the contrasting lifestyles of the Mill Manager and his workers.

 

You can also enjoy a horse-tram ride with the Horses at Work team and find out just how important working horses were in the Victorian era.
