Spent more than a few hours here on Saturday. Great place worth a visit. Friendly helpful staff.
Somewhat disappointing. Nothing but weaving and the clothing trade. Every other industry is ignored. The lower level with engines in it has no labelling so you have no idea what they are.
A very well thought out and presented exhibition of wool manufacturing. I will certainly go back again.
Very interesting . Worth a visit. Reasonably priced entry fee. On the down side shame there were no actual working displays or machinery showing how things were done
Great value for money. We really enjoyed the tour and the rest of the exhibits. There was even a free children's movie. Would recommend.
Attended for a Steampunk event. Will go back another time to have a proper look round.
Really surprised how good this place is. I've been 50m away so many times and not realised! Amazing stuff to learn, there is something for everyone. Even Disney films in the cinema for kids if needed!
Had a great time here, a very informative and interactive guided session and a free afternoon. Could have spent a couple more hours there . Thanks Gaffa
Absolutely mind blowing textile machinery on display - seeing the Spinning Mule in action was a huge treat! Our tour guide was super friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. We will be back!
Great place. Really makes you think about what mill work was like but also what an influence it was on the growth of Leeds. Slightly odd departure, where the last door locks behind you and you then have to guess your way through about 500yds of footways back to entrance...get some better signing!
Really great museum that I've been meaning to visit for years but never actually got around to it, my loss! A fantastic insight into local industry from the past with a focus on the textile boom that made the area a powerhouse. Nicely presented displays, some great demos and a real exploration opportunity due to the size of the place. The colour garden (dyes) and cinema were unexpected treats.
We thought we would just call in this museum for a quick look, how wrong we were. This place is fascinating, we spent almost three hours here. The displays are very informative and the staff so helpful. The reception staff made us feel very welcome and seemed genuinely proud of their museum. The gentleman who did the spinning machine demonstration clearly new his subject and was happy to talk to us afterwards. I also enjoyed the queens of industry temporary exhibition. I highly recommend a visit.
