Nantwich Museum - Civil War Centre

Temporary Exhibitions

In light of the current government advice in relation to the Coronavirus, we have taken the difficult decision to close the Museum. See here for our plans for reopening. 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 are providing digital versions of exhibitions that are scheduled during this period, please see below.
