Moorside Mills was built around 1875 as a small worsted spinning Mill by John Moore. Ownership of the mills changed many times, and they developed and grew. In 1970, Bradford Council bought Moorside Mills from Messrs. W & J Whitehead to create an innovative museum.
Bradford's Industrial Museum has permanent displays of textile machinery, steam power, engineering and motor vehicles, along with an exciting exhibitions programme. You can enjoy the splendour of the Mill Owner's House, or visit the more humble Mill-workers' terraces.
Our Education team runs regular workshops schools and groups, along with special events and workshops accompanying the exhibitions programme.
