Welcome Back!

Bradford Industrial Museum has reopened. With a one-way system round the site in place, there will be extra signage to help maintain social distancing. To ensure the safety and comfort of visitors and staff there will be hand sanitiser stations throughout the museum.

Moorside Mills was built around 1875 as a small worsted spinning Mill by John Moore. Ownership of the mills changed many times, and they developed and grew. In 1970, Bradford Council bought Moorside Mills from Messrs. W & J Whitehead to create an innovative museum

Bradford's Industrial Museum has permanent displays of textile machinery, steam power, engineering and motor vehicles, along with an exciting exhibitions programme.
