Summer Steamings at Bolton Steam Museum

Volunteers from the Northern Mill Engine Society have rescued and restored 30 old stationary steam engines, which once powered the cotton mills and woollen mills of the North of England.  Our oldest engine is nearly 180 years old, and most are over 100 years old.  Some engines are now unique - the only one of its type to survive anywhere in the world! 

We have an activity trail for the children, and full disabled access and baby changing facilities. 

The Engine View Cafe offers drinks and snacks, admission is free, with free unlimited parking on Morrison's Supermarket Car Park site
