Description:
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. Moorside Mills is also home to the museum’s team of working horses. Some of the horses may be out working on the streets of Bradford or even starring in a film or television programme. Weather permitting, you can also enjoy a ride in a horse-drawn vehicle.   Listen to oral history recordings from The Grand Trunk Road - from Delhi to the Kyber Pass exhibition.
