Leeds Industrial Museum contains exhibits from 18th century to the present day and tells the history of manufacturing in Leeds, including textiles, clothing, printing and engineering.
The Galleries and collections tell the story of number of industries that have shaped the city we know and love today, from the recreated Victoria Cottages through to the waterwheel. Visit the textile gallery and the milling room to find out more about Leeds’ connection with the wool and cloth industries. Leeds has a long history of involvement in the wool trade and its position as a centre of the cloth trade was greatly enhanced by the opening of navigable waterways, the Aire and Calder Navigation 1960 and Leeds/Liverpool canal in 1700, which provided a direct link between Leeds and its customers and suppliers in Europe, Australia and the Americas.
In addition to this, Leeds Industrial Museum also has a working 1920’s cinema where a range of short films are shown. Continuing this theme, there is also a media gallery containing a range of cameras and projectors, as well as printing presses. Come and discover the trades and manufacturing that built this great city at Leeds Industrial Museum.
