Ruddington Framework Knitters Museum

Living history museum Ruddington Framework Knitters Museum is a unique surviving example of a 19th century framework knitters’ yard. 

You’ll discover how framework knitters and their families lived and worked here in Victorian times – the sights, the sounds and even the smells!

We tell the 400 year history of framework knitting, from its role in the Industrial Revolution to the infamous Luddite riots of the 1800s, and how framework knitting gave birth to the Nottingham lace industry.

Venue is available for educational visits, research and event hire.

Home to the Smirfitt Research Library.
