In light of the current government advice in relation to the Coronavirus, we have taken the difficult decision to close the Museum until further notice. This is in the interests of public health and the well being of our staff and volunteers.

Rest assured that activities behind the scenes will continue, to make sure that the Museum is in a good position when it reopens.

We hope you like our new website. We will be continuing to add new items here, and have now launched Nantwich Digital Museum on Facebook – so stay safe and keep visiting online!

Nantwich Museum – What to see?

Our Main Gallery explores former industries including salt making, clock making and the shoe and clothing industries. You can also find out about some of the more disastrous events to impact the town such as the 1583 Great Fire of Nantwich.

Our Cheese Room is dedicated to this industry and traces it through the Victorian era to the present day. Cheshire cheese is the oldest named British cheese and Nantwich has been a centre for producing and selling Cheshire cheese.

Always changing, our Millennium Gallery hosts a programme of historic and art exhibitions with individuals and groups encouraged to use and hire this space. Find out more about holding an exhibition by contacting us.

For a small museum, there is a lot to see and do with regular talks, walks, coffee mornings and more.
