A mutual inductance bridge to measure low frequency magnetic susceptibilities of magnetic materials has been constructed. Salient features of the bridge, which uses a variable mutual inductance simulated using operational amplifiers, the cryostat and the coil assembly are described in this paper. The apparatus has been employed for accurate measurement of superconducting transition temperatures and for sensitive detection of magnetic ordering transitions in liquid helium and liquid nitrogen temperature ranges respectively. The bridge has been calibrated to determine the static susceptibility of magnetic materials as a function of temperature.
