Things to do at the Nottingham Industrial Museum review

The Nottingham Industrial Museum is located in the grounds of Wollaton Hall on the outskirts of Nottingham. It is a family-friendly attraction which is run by volunteers in part of the 17th-century stables block.

The museum contains a display of local textiles machinery, transport, telecommunications, mining and engineering technology. In the steam hall, you can see a large pumping engine plus other important engines. There is also a model railway in here with a display of miniature model steam engines.

Their transport gallery tells the story of some of the companies and people who shaped advances in transport with names such as Raleigh, Humber and Brough. Kids can have a go at tapping their name out using Morse code. On the last Sunday of every month, they hold ‘Steaming Day’ where you can get up close to a selection of running engines. There are other exhibitions at the museum and you can extend your day out by visiting the museum at Wollaton Hall plus the grounds and play areas.

Covid 19: Due to current restrictions not everything will be open, or it may be open differently to normal, at the attraction that you are visiting. Please consult their social media accounts, give them a call or visit their website if you can’t find the information you are looking for.
