Always looks closed. Old fashioned and grumpy staff. Poorly labelled displays. Needs a thorough overhaul.

Never know this place existed until it popped up in Google. Short walk from Bradford centre and next to a lovely park. The hall was great to walk around, fantastic stained glass, and some nice little bits about the civil war.
