Nottingham Industrial Museum

Winter refresh and temporary closure from Monday 16th October 2017 onwards.

We are delighted to announce that Nottingham Industrial Museum is undergoing a range of improvements to enhance your experience.

However, to ensure the safety and security of our collections and visitors while refurbishment and maintenance works take place, the museum is closed and will reopen late in January 2018 – keep an eye out for our re-opening event.

When the museum reopens visitors will once again be able to explore and enjoy our five large fascinating galleries of objects which tell the incredible story of Nottingham’s industrial heritage.

Unfortunately, we will hold no events until we re-open, but many of the events we planned for this year will take place in the New Year. Please visit our events page which will be populated towards the end of this year with the existing events, a learning and education schedule for the local community, talks, concerts, private tours and special themed days and weekends – as well as our ever-popular end of month Steam Day.

We will be launching an exciting rebrand of the Museum, including a new vibrant and eye-catching logo with a complementary colour scheme, investing in a new volunteer uniform, refurbishing ‘behind the scenes’ areas such as our mess hall and exhibition space, sprucing up and reinvigorating our front of house displays and implementing cost savings throughout our operation.


Nottingham Industrial Museum

Discover the people, companies and industries that made Nottingham famous around the world. Nottingham Industrial Museum has five galleries each relating to a key Nottingham industry: textiles, transport, communication, mining and power. Through our collection, we encourage our visitors to investigate Nottingham’s rich industrial heritage. The museum boasts many wonderful artefacts and exhibits including a working Basford Beam engine and an original Thomas Humber Bicycle.

The museum sits in the 17th-century stable block of Wollaton Hall.

On the last Sunday of every month a working day is held where you can see a selection of engines running.
