Welcome to Nantwich Museum

Explore the town’s local history and find out about former industries including salt making, cheese 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, as well as other key events such as the 1644 Battle of Nantwich.

Always changing, our Millennium Gallery hosts a programme of historic and art exhibitions with individuals and groups encouraged to use and hire this space.

The Museum is a Registered Charity (No. 509386) and does not charge for admission. Donations are welcome, see here.

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

Please note – due to the Coronavirus we are currently CLOSED. Please see the update below:
