Re-opened and now run by a group of volunteer enthusiasts who believe that the industrial heritage of Calderdale should be preserved and shared with everyone. This special museum houses static and fully working original machines together with many special and rare artefacts relating to the industrial heritage of Calderdale.
Situated near to Halifax railway station and the famous Eureka children’s museum, and next door to the newly renovated Piece Hall, the new central Library and Archive, and Square Chapel, Calderdale Industrial Museum is well placed in the heart of Halifax’s growing ‘cultural quarter’.
Access is to the side of the Museum via our newly installed ramp and stairs, internally there are stairs and a lift to all floors.
Disabled Parking is available by prior request
Open every Saturday from 10.00am to 4.00pm. Last entry 3.30pm.
Entrance fee: £5 per adult. Concessions £4. accompanied children enter free.
Gathered together over a number of years this special collection represents a cross section of the wide variety of industries that developed in Calderdale. Some of the machines are the only surviving examples of their type in the country. Several machines are in working order and, where possible, will be demonstrated for short periods during opening hours. Every effort has been made to present the machines as they would have been when first used. The collection covers the last 250 years from the industrial revolution.
