One of the earliest free museums in England, packed with interesting items, with a recent and excellent makeover. Well worth a visit.

I have been in here several times, mainly because my children love it. This week they had a display of old computer games and my son loved playing on all the old consoles. Each room held an interest for us and we spent about two hours here.

A bit of a bizarre entrance with coming up the stairs but the museum has a certain feel with its natural history and amazing exhibitions!

A really good mix of the best of older style museums and a more modern approach. Completely unexpected as despite being fairly local we hadn't previously heard of this museum. Everyone in our party enjoyed a thoughtful hour.

I visited the museum in the hope of seeing the at collection but sadly the gallery was closed whilst they changed things around. I was disappointed but the museum was incredible. Really, really interesting things to see and learn about including a mummy of a young boy. This was mind blowing. Well worth a visit in my opinion!

Great place to visit in the centre of Warrington. Lots of interesting things to see about the town and it's history with changing exhibits and artwork, and staff around to ask. Especially like the Cabinet of curiosities room.

Great place to take the children to educate them but sadly it hasn't changed since I was a child!!! If I was blind folded and asked to show you where something was in there I probably could as the whole place hasn't changed since I was Little!Some of the sensory learning materials are dated and I can remember playing with...
