The fascinating history of one of Cheshire’s most attractive and historic towns is brought to life by Nantwich Museum, founded in January 1980.
Located in Pillory Street, at the heart of the town, the museum has main galleries telling the story of Nantwich through the ages, including:
- Roman salt making
- Tudor Nantwich’s Great Fire,
- The English Civil War & Battle of Nantwich (1644)
- Shoe and Clothing industries.
Beyond the galleries lie extensions. The first contains the cheese-making exhibition, dedicated to demonstrating how the county’s famous cheese has traditionally been made and sold around the floral market town of Nantwich. Above it is the Joseph Heler meeting room, which also houses our collection of maps.
Next to these is Your Space, where small exhibitions are staged, followed by the magnificent, Millennium Gallery, which provides the perfect home for a diverse programme of temporary exhibitions.
The museum does not make a charge for admission, although donations are always welcome.
Opening hours are: Tuesday to Saturday, 10.30am to 4.30pm.
