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 at 3.45pm.
If you would like to book a visit on either a Wednesday or Sunday afternoon, please click the below link to book. For walks booking, go to the ‘What’s On’ tab.
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 at 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.
We look forward to sharing Congleton’s unique and fascinating heritage with you.
