Nottingham Industrial Museum
Telephone: 0115 9153936
Nottingham Industrial Museum allows you to explore the different aspects of the Industrial Revolution in Nottingham, and the names of companies and people that made the city famous around the world.
The Transport Gallery contains 2 17th century carriages, a railway display, plus a collection of locally made motorcycles.
There is also a Brough Superior car, one of only 4 that were made!
In the Textile Gallery you will learn about their importance in Nottingham, and get to see the ancient machines that were used to make mass produced cotton lace, and woollen goods too.
Kids will enjoy the Telecommunications Gallery, which has a model spark transmitter used to send Morse code that they can use to tap out their name.
The Steam Gallery contains an impressive Basford Beam Engine, a large variety of pumps and engines, plus the work of 2 long established Nottingham companies. There is also a telephone exchange, where you can call each other on phones and watch the components make the connection!
Outside, you can see one of the few remaining Ginn Wheels, plus a coal truck, tractors, and a restored living van.

It may be worth checking out Nottingham Industrial Museum's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Nottingham Industrial Museum before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
