Welcome to Congleton Museum

We are closed until 18th January. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Revised Opening Arrangements

The museum’s opening arrangements are changing from Thursday 5th August. You will now be able to visit us between 10.30am and 4.15pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays without making a prior appointment. The latest time for admission will still remain 3.45pm.

To help us maintain a safe environment for everyone, we will be limiting the number of visitors to a maximum of two groups and no more than ten individuals as any one time. Please support our commitment to keeping everyone safe by either waiting or returning a little later should visitor numbers be greater than this.

Due to the enclosed nature of our exhibition space, we would like all adult visitors to continue to wear a face covering and everyone to sanitise their hands on arrival.

If you would like to book a visit on either a Wednesday or Sunday afternoon please go to our booking page (above tab).

We look forward to sharing Congleton’s unique and fascinating heritage with you.

NEW! Have a look under the ‘What’s On’ tab to see our virtual exhibitions!

The Congleton Hoards

Come and see our imaginative re-interpretation of Congleton’s two 17th century coin hoards. See them displayed in the context of their discovery, a field bank for the four Priesty Hoards and a wattle and daub wall for the Moody Street Hoard.

This is the first occasion more that 30 of the 3,409 coins from the Priesty Hoards have been on public display at any one time.

Volunteers Needed! Please follow this link for information about volunteer opportunities at the museum.


Congleton Museum is a free entry museum. We rely on the generosity of visitors and members with their donations and small grants to keep the museum running. It costs £1,000 a week to maintain and develop the museum.
