Museum to open on Saturdays and Thursdays for the school summer holidays !
We are pleased to announce that Calderdale industrial Museum will be open to the public on Thursdays in the school summer holidays in addition to our regular Saturday openings. The visits will be slightly different on a Thursday to a Saturday. Visitors on a Thursday will be taken on a guided tour around the museum and have the opportunity to see the volunteers at work in the museum. You will also be able to see how work is progressing on our new “Fleece to Piece” display on the top floor. No booking is required for either a Thursday or Saturday. Our opening times remain 10am to 4pm, with the last admission at 3pm.
Our plans are of course dependent on Government rules, and may be subject to change. Strict social distancing will be in place, with visitors and volunteers wearing mask/visors and numbers regulated. Booking is not needed.
Plan Your Visit to the museum
Re-opened and run almost entirely by volunteer enthusiasts who believe that the industrial heritage of Calderdale should be preserved and shared with everyone, the museum houses a special collection representing the wide variety of industries that developed in Calderdale in the last 250 years. The working exhibits can’t fail to evoke the spirit of the Industrial Revolution. Suitable for all, both young and old ! We are situated in the heart of Halifax’s growing “cultural quarter” adjacent to the Piece Hall, Halifax railway station, Square Chapel and the famous Eureka children’s museum and are considered one of the premier visitor attractions in Halifax.
Don’t forget to visit our cafe after your visit, where hot drinks and cake are served, and our wonderful shop selling unique locally made items.
