Unfortunately the place is really suffering from a lack of Local Government funding, despite some wonderful heritage and industrial stuff.

A really interesting museum set within Wollaton Park. The entrance is through the Courtyard (signage could be better, I think). Don`t be put off by the unassuming exterior it is, like the Tardis, much bigger inside. Admission price for our visit was £5 per adult,...More

This place is an unexpected gem. They have a wide range of industrial machines and engines, with knowledgeable volunteers to explain everything. Roger seems to know absolutely everything about the history of steam! Thanks too to David for demonstrating the lace-making machine. Definitely recommended 😊
