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.
