Housed in two Victorian schools, the collection reflects the development of the textile and engineering industries, with related displays of archaeology and social history and a large local photographic collection.

Explore a Victorian classroom and discover a gallery devoted to 17th-century natural historian John Ray. A temporary exhibition gallery hosts a changing programme. The Warner Textile Archive is a short walk from the museum.
