  • It was closed so we didn't get inside due to poor information about its opening times. Obviously a very small museum such as this will be struggling with lack of financial support but if it has any volunteer helpers they would be well advised to spend some time on updating their advertising.
  • A very unusual museum. Visited today and was very impressed. The staff are very helpful and the museum is very interesting. I was keen to go as a lot of my ancestors were framework knitters in the Nottingham area.
  • A fascinating museum with live demonstrations and hands on activities
  • Intriguing place! Great to take kids
  • This the premier museum in the UK for Framework Knitting history. Includes both local and national industrial heritage with preserved original machines in their original listed buildings. A superb educational resource.

Where to stay in Nottingham

Staying in Nottingham's historical town center not only keeps you close to the area's finest shopping and dining, but also near an increasingly popular bohemian quarter. The town center is packed with top-quality boutique and spa hotels, as well as luxurious self-catering apartments. If you are travelling on a shoestring or just quickly passing through, consider one of Nottingham's low-budget hostels or inns. For a taste of country living, book your stay a working-farm cottage or a family-run countryside B&B.
