This is a great free day out for the kids. There's loads to look at and interactive sections in most of the rooms. Its the perfect place to spend a few hours away from the noise in Warrington town centre. I can't recommend it highly enough.

As a child we would visit Warrington Museum and Art Gallery and attend the various workshops for children. I remember once seeing a penny farthing bicycle in the display exhibit and feeling a sense of wonder from this small, mysterious, Victorian museum. There are always great exhibits: from The Muppets to characters from the Labyrinth/The works of Brian Froud with... More

As a Warrington 'lad' I've been to the museum on numerous occasions. I always see something different or from a different aspect when I go. For me it's brill. Remember we're not a city so please don't compare it with the big city museums.

Free admission, but check times it may not be open at a time you expect. Quite a lot to see in one visit, if you look at everything, but not all things are of interest to all visitors. I hate to say this but I found the selection bitty, some dead animals/birds, rocks a few clocks and a small amount... More

My kids love the museum and especially all the bits they can get involved with (like trying on real armour, etc). Love it!

I visit here a couple of times a year, either when it is raining or when there is an exhibition on. Situated in the town centre, it is a small building,but well worth a visit
