Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Please note we are temporarily closed until Saturday 21st October to allow for refurbishment works to take place. A treasure trove of the fascinating, the curious and the amazing! A vivid and intriguing picture of the area and its people, from prehistory to present day, revealed through world class collections. From Roman finds to textiles, from birds to transport, Tolson is Huddersfield's history book.
Useful Information: Food available for purchase, Bathroom facilities

Far from boring there are examples of transport, housing , work and life through the ages. My children love this museum. There are lots of places to run around outside. Crown green bowling and a playground. You will love the peacocks.

If you want to find out about the industrial heritage of Huddersfield, are interested in archaeology or birds(large collection of stuffed ones c/o Charles Waterton) , or old modes of transport the this is the place to come. You could easily spend a good half day at this museum, lapping up all the information. If, like us you have children who need hands on experience and plenty of activity ,it may be best to go when there is an activity workshop on for the children. Our 's enjoyed browsing in the shop at the end!

This was a fun learning experience for myself (though I've been before there's always something I've missed) and grandchildren aged from 2 to 15. Enough hands on activities to keep them happy and the 2 year old did not want to leave.

A vary varied set of exhibits. A great deal to see and do. Local history to the fore but not an over powering influence. Educational in many ways.

A beautiful setting. Good grounds with a playground included.

This museum might look small, but there's so much to see there. An interesting range of displays, with something to interest everyone. I've visited so many times, as both a child and an adult, and have always found it very enjoyable.
