The museum is the last remaining part of the old workhouse and has some interesting memories on display. There is an introductory film which is worth watching. A school is held for children to give them an insight into what real schooling was like back in the day (I only remember half of the hardships but I've seen pictures of... More

As it was a Wednesday afternoon, it was very quiet so we had the place to ourselves and the guy on reception was very pleasant and helpful. A lovely small museum with the history of the workhouse (which has been cleverly converted into the museum) downstairs and Northwich town history upstairs. There is a dressing up and play area for...

The last time, I came here was when I was a child and the place was called "The Salt Museum". Now; it's not just a museum about Salt, but a museum about the history of Northwich. The museum is split into different sections and includes: Northwich in Roman Times, The 1960's regeneration of Northwich, Boat Building History of Northwich, The... More

We only called in because the place we'd gone to the area to visit was closed, but we were very pleasantly surprised by the standard of the displays and how much there was to see. Excellent value for money and a very friendly and helpful lady manning the desk. Couldn't fault it, definitely worth a visit.

Didn't do the museum but was passing and bought a selection of stocking fillers for the kids - books, wooden puzzles, fossils - that kind of thing. Some nice and unusual little gifts!

For many poor, the workhouse was the final destiny in the 19th Century. In this old workhouse we have a chance to see how many ended their days, how families were broken up, and lots more. The information is well presented, and it’s perhaps the best way to learn about this aspect of British history. Workhouses were grim, and you’ll... More

We went to this museum to see the only standard roman cavalry helmet ever found in this country but found the rest of it very interesting as well. It utilises the old Northwich Workhouse buildings and much of the museum is dedicated to that. It also has small displays on some of the other industries that Northwich has enjoyed. Salt... More

Felt compelled to write a review on behalf of myself and the young lady that I care for as we were both very impressed with the museum, particularly the curator on shift (Phill I think his name was?). He was very enthusiastic, emphatic and made the experience very enjoyable for the both of us. It was very interesting and the... More

We went to a couple of the activity days they run for children over the summer holidays. They were thoroughly enjoyable. The staff were excellent with the children and made the different activities around the museum fun for them. Will certainly be making a return visit.
