Tolson Museum and Ravensknowle Park
Tolson Museum and Ravensknowle Park is great for a fascinating and fun day out, with plenty for everyone to enjoy, and it’s free to visit!
The museum, originally Ravensknowle Hall, offers a vivid intriguing picture of the area and its people from prehistory to present day, through its unique collections that include objects from the Luddite rebellion, historic vehicles, and the stunning Bird Room, an exhibition that is nearly a century old! Discover the museum’s top ten treasures, and explore the history of the Hall and how it became a museum, plus how it has developed over time into Huddersfield’s history book! There are plenty of memorable oddities, interactive exhibits, photo opportunities, and a children’s activity corner with toys to play with.
The park is a perfect setting for the museum, and is a popular green space with a children’s playground, paddling pool, skate park, tennis courts, bowling green, and plenty of lovely areas for picnics and games.

Free to visit.
