Nottingham Industrial Museum


Winter refresh and temporary closure from Monday 16th October 2017 onwards.

We are delighted to announce that Nottingham Industrial Museum is undergoing a range of improvements to enhance your experience.

However, to ensure the safety and security of our collections and visitors while refurbishment and maintenance works take place, the museum is closed and will reopen late in January 2018 – keep an eye out for our re-opening event.

When the museum reopens visitors will once again be able to explore and enjoy our five large fascinating galleries of objects which tell the incredible story of Nottingham’s industrial heritage.

Unfortunately, we will hold no events until we re-open, but many of the events we planned for this year will take place in the New Year. Please visit our events page which will be populated towards the end of this year with the existing events, a learning and education schedule for the local community, talks, concerts, private tours and special themed days and weekends – as well as our ever-popular end of month Steam Day.

We will be launching an exciting rebrand of the Museum, including a new vibrant and eye-catching logo with a complementary colour scheme, investing in a new volunteer uniform, refurbishing ‘behind the scenes’ areas such as our mess hall and exhibition space, sprucing up and reinvigorating our front of house displays and implementing cost savings throughout our operation.

We would like your contribution during our temporary closure period to help ensure that the future of Nottingham Industrial Museum reflects what our visitors want when we reopen in late January 2018.

We would very much appreciate it if you could fill out this survery. It shouldn't take any longer than five minutes!
