The NMES was formed in 1966 by a small but extremely dedicated band of enthusiasts who decided that something had to be done to preserve the steam engines from the textile industries of Lancashire and Yorkshire before they were all scrapped. Most established museums at that time did not have significant collections of this type of machinery and the work of volunteer organisations, such as the Northern Mill Engine Society, was important in ensuring that a reasonably representative sample of engines has been preserved.

After some 15 years work, a museum was opened to the public in 1983 in one of the original engine-houses of Atlas No 3 Mill where 5 of the rebuilt engines could be seen working in steam. It was decided to call the museum The Bolton Steam Museum and over the following 7 years it became a well-known attraction in the area.
