Bankfield Museum

in Halifax


Bankfield Museum is one of four sister-sites across Halifax, incorporating Shibden Hall, Heptonstall Museum & Smith Art Gallery, as well as the Akroyd Library within Bankfield Museum itself.

We tell the story of Halifax and Calderdale through our rich and diverse collections, covering local history, costume, art, toys, military history, jewellery and textiles from around the world.

We also host temporary exhibitions including costume, embroidery, quilting, textile art, paintings and photography. Each site has something unique to offer, and there’s always something new to see and do.

Each of our sites has different opening hours, so remember to check our website or call ahead before you visit. We look forward to seeing you soon!
