Bradford Industrial Museum
Since the famous Education Act of 1870, Bradford has been a national pioneer in education and child development.
Educating Bradford is a family friendly exhibition that:
· celebrates 150 years of education in Bradford, from 1870 to the present day;
· shows how modern teaching methods are still influenced by 19th and 20th century educational and child healthcare reforms;
· charts the development of adult learning; recognition that an educated workforce helped support the development of Bradford as an international powerhouse.
This is an evolving exhibition that, like a child, will develop and grow throughout the year.
This exhibition is inspired by the landmark book Education in Bradford 1870-1970 which provided a detailed description and celebration of learning in the city. 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of its publication.
This exhibition and Bradford Industrial Museum are free, but donations are welcomed and much appreciated.
You can't visit Bradford Industrial Museum to see the exhibition right now - but you can look at a virtual version here until we can welcome you back to our sites.
