Following the latest government guidance, all West Cheshire Museums will be closed from Thursday 5 November for a minimum of four weeks.

We would like to thank everyone who has visited our museums in the past few months. See you again soon!

Our website and social media will continue to provide things-to-do online as well as the latest information on when we'll next be open.
