Nottingham Industrial Museum

About

Discover the people, companies and industries that made Nottingham famous around the world. Nottingham Industrial Museum has five galleries each relating to a key Nottinghamshire industry: textiles, transport, communication, mining and power. The museum has many wonderful artefacts and exhibits including a working Basford Beam engine and an original Thomas Humber Bicycle. They are working to get more artefacts into working condition, so you can admire the local ingenuity and skills that went into Nottingham Lace and other exports.

Through the collection, visitors are encouraged to investigate Nottinghamshire’s rich industrial heritage. The museum is entirely run by volunteers who are on hand to show you around and answer your questions. The museum welcome children with regular activities and family oriented tours.

On the last Sunday of every month, join the Steaming Day when you can see a selection of the engines running.

The museum is an ideal part of any visit to Wollaton Hall and Deer Park, where the museum sits in and behind the 17th century stable block.

Follow signs to the University of Nottingham and then the brown signs to Wollaton Hall and Deer Park.

From the M1:

Take junction 25 and then the A52 to Nottingham (1st exit from the roundabout from the north, 4th exit from the roundabout from the south).

Stay on the A52 through the ‘Bardills’  roundabout and across the ‘Bramcote’ roundabout.

Turn left onto Thoresby Road. Continue onto Bramcote Lane and take the second exit at the roundabout to stay on Bramcote Lane.

At the T junction, opposite the Admiral Rodney pub, turn right onto Wollaton Road, then continue past St Leonard’s Church.

After the bend, Wollaton Hall and Deer Park will be on your right.

Pass the Exit gate and at the main entrance turn right into the park, over the cattle grid.

The nearest car park to the Nottingham Industrial Museum is at the end of the drive. From the entrance follow the road past the first car park and children’s play area, turn left onto the tree-lined drive and come up to the second car park on your right.
