Calderdale Industrial Museum is a fascinating museum, dedicated to the industrial heritage of the area from domestic textile manufacture in the 17thC through to modern machine tools. The museum contains a number of working machines, some of which date back almost two hundred years – all of which were either built or used in Halifax. The museum is unusual because it covers such a wide range of industries in one museum. As well as machines and machinery the museum also has multiple displays, including those relating to world-famous names such as Mackintosh’s Toffees (which became Quality Street) and Crossley’s Carpets, both of which were ‘born in Halifax’; it also has information on some of the famous names associated with the area.
