Bankfield Museum

A Museum since 1887, Bankfield tells the story of Halifax and Calderdale, using its rich and diverse collections. Set in the attractive surroundings of Akroyd Park, at the centre of Akroydon model village conservation area, Bankfield is a Victorian mansion that was the home of local mill owner, philanthropist and MP, Colonel Edward Akroyd. The Museum’s exhibitions cover local history, costume, art, toys, military history, jewellery and textiles from around the world. The collections contain objects from Ancient Egypt through to the 21st Century as the museum continues to collect and preserve items for future generations. Bankfield is located a short distance from the centre of Halifax, with free parking, and is close to public transport links.
