Displays on the textile industry, education (Victorian schoolroom with slates), WWI, suffragettes and a variety of other curious items relating to the area, from old washing machines to tin toys. The people were friendly and helpful, too - definitely worth an hour or two.

This is a small gem of a museum at the bottom of Town street. The WW1 displays of locals who fought in it is excellent. There is also other displays and artifacts of Horsforth its people and its achievments.

Great little museum - not all areas of a city have there own dedicated museum showing the history of the area. Lots of photos, every changing exhibits and a lovely atmosphere.
