If you haven't been to the Museum and Art Gallery in Warrington then its about time you did. Great for all ages and young children especially are well catered for as they have different exhibitions and activities throughout the year.There's also free craft activities from 12 noon every Saturday. Parking was easy and usual facilities available. An overlooked gem!

We're on a canal holiday, we stopped in Stockton Heath and went to Warrington on the bus. The museum was an absolute delight with enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. It was a diamond in the rough and I urge anyone with a passion for learning to go!

Musuem and art gallery spread over two floors and packed full of world history, biological exhibits, local history and a menagerie of weird and wonderful items. Never even knew it was here but I will definitely be recommending it to others! The only negative was that it was very warm when we visited and the heating was on full so... More
