Overview

Housed in what was once the world's largest woollen mill, Leeds Industrial Museum houses a wealth of gems located in a beautiful riverside setting. Step back in time to learn about the industrial history of Leeds from manufacturing textiles and clothing to printing, engineering and locomotives, which the city was world famous for.

A amazing museum, so much to see and do, loads of different industrial machines to see, a great section on photography, and how film is made, lots to see and do. I cannot believe more people in Leeds do not go to visit this place.
