But more than this! A delightful relatively unknown museum with 14th, 15th and 18th century parts, furnished appropriately and accessibly. Such helpful staff too. A little gem - well done Bradford for keeping this gem in good heart.

A place that pre-dates the town/city of Bradford. A strong connection to the English War- a hidden bradford treasure!

It shows life over a period of about five hundred years with each room being different. The 'ghost room' is a real step back in time. There's a park across the road too so all in all a good day out for the kids.
