We found great results, but some are outside Wigan. Showing results in neighbouring cities.
Limit search to Wigan.
#1 of 1 Museums in Tyldesley
I put a few pounds in the donation box - and hope more people will do the same for this very worthwhile museum (I also think it deserves more visitors - it really is an undiscovered gem, I feel)..
The winding house steam engines are awesome, check on line for when they are due to be run (on compressed air) the museum building is small but well worth a visit, the rest of the site is a work in progress.

There is an egypt section which is smaller than some bigger museums but still great and the huge dino skeleton was a hit with all three of them.
The museum is situated in Bolton town centre over the road from the Octagon Theatre which is good to go for a spot of lunch, My granddaughter enjoyed the Aquarium and the Libary she is a little young to appreciate...
