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.

Delighted to find this little museum as we were in the area and had found references to workhouses researching family history. The museum is situated in the remaining buildings of the old workhouse, the ground floor shows the schoolroom and gives some stories of residents and some idea of the life of the occupants, such a difference then to see...

After visiting the lion salt works I was given a 10% off voucher to visit this property and although the price was very good anyway I decided to add this as my next stop the same day. After reading reviews on here before going I was pretty dissapointed to be honest. I was expecting more information regards the actual workhouse,... More

Every half term or summer holiday, Weaver Hall museum put on craft activities for children. Again, this summer holiday we were not disappointed! This time it was dream catchers - my 2 boys had a great time. The dedicated volunteer staff are knowledgeable and encouraging and really engage with the children to bring out their creative potential. Depending upon the... More

We had a few hours to kill in Northwich and were really pleased that we chose to visit the Weaver Hall Museum - heaps to see with some very imaginative and compelling displays centered around the history of the town and the area. Although we did not have kids with us, I was pleased to see how well the displays... More
