Nottingham has been at the heart of major trade for hundreds of years, something The Nottingham Industrial Museum celebrates with five fantastic and educational exhibits.
The museum is housed in a 17th-century stable block and is stuffed with intriguing artefacts based on textiles, transport, communication, mining and power. The Steam exhibit boasts an original Thomas Humber Bicycle, while the Textile Gallery shows off ancient machines which were used to mass produce lace and cotton. The Transport exhibit will then take you back in time with two 17th century carriages and a Brough Superior car - of which only 4 were ever made!
Kids will love the Telecommunications Gallery where, when using a model spark transmitter, they can tap out actual morse code! With the help of the friendly team of staff, you can even spell out your own name. Then on the last Sunday of the month, the museum holds a ‘Steaming Day’ where you can get up close to a selection of running engines - perfect for fans of Thomas the Tank Engine!
