Nottingham Industrial Museum

Nottingham Industrial Museum Logo

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. We have many wonderful artefacts and exhibits including a working Basford Beam engine and an original Thomas Humber Bicycle. And we 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 our collection, we encourage our visitors to investigate Nottinghamshire’s rich industrial heritage. We are entirely run by volunteers who are on hand to show you around and answer your questions. Our events draw visitors from around the country and we hope to see you at one soon. And we welcome children with regular activities and family-oriented tours.

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