Telling the Story of Mid Cheshire
Weaver Hall Museum

Weaver Hall Museum and Workhouse is full of displays and tales of the history and industry of West Cheshire. 

The stories are told through films, reconstructions, models and displays of intriguing artefacts relating to market towns, transport, archaeology, and the building’s former history.

The museum is housed within the old Northwich Union Workhouse building. 

A special display in the former workhouse schoolroom explores life for the paupers, who had a dismal diet and a harsh work routine.

There are exciting displays on a range of local themes which change every few months. 

Admission is free to our special exhibitions gallery.

Location:
