Welcome to Nantwich Museum

A warm welcome to Nantwich Museum.  The Museum is on Pillory Street, close to the centre of the historic market town of Nantwich in Cheshire. The building was once the town’s Victorian library and stands on the site of the town’s former jail.

You can find out about the events, industries and people that shaped the development of the town dating from the Roman period to the 20th century. The Museum has its own Cheese Room dedicated to telling the story of this important industry. We also have a Civil War Centre where you can find out all about the Battle of Nantwich.

There is a changing programme of exhibitions in our Millennium Gallery. These are mainly by local artists and community groups, so there is always something new to see.
