Collections at Nottingham Industrial Museum
Come and learn all about Nottinghamshire’s industrial heritage at the Nottingham Industrial Museum. Our fascinating collection explores our rich industrial history from The Industrial Revolution to the early 20th century.
We are open every weekend and have five galleries. Our exhibits reflect the railway, bicycle, motorcycle, lace, telecommunication, pharmaceutical, and tobacco industries. Come and discover the history of famous names, for example, Raleigh, Brough, Players, Boots, Humber, and Reader. Also see our collection of working steam, diesel engines, our Victorian kitchen, blacksmith’s forge and woodworking shop. Our volunteers manage the museum, set up the events, and will make your visit special.
Nottingham’s only Industrial Museum is ranked number 4 of over 220 things to do in Nottingham. Find out more about our exciting industrial heritage on this website, our Facebook page, and our Wikipedia site. You will find us in the Stable block of Wollaton Hall and Deer Park, near to the cafe. Plenty of parking is available. We also have our Charity shop, the Treasure Trove.
