Loved how the rooms in the house were recreated - with lots of authentic looking furniture/objects/items. We were supplied with headphones as it was a self audio tour and we could go from room to room at our own leisure. The story/history to each room along with the sounds and authentic voices were brilliant and made you feel as if... More

This museum is an old house which has been laid out showing how it changed throughout it's history. It has been done in way that realistically transports you back in time. My wife doesn't like too many stairs and it on several floors. However, there is a lift and not only that, the audio handset given to you is adjusted... More

Very informative and deceptively large museum right in the heart of Stockport's old town quarter. Well worth a visit and the admission fee, would highly recommend.

Didn't expect much from this place and it would have been in the 'hidden gem' category, were it not for good old Trip Advisor. Kept us (family with teenage daughters) all interested for nearly two hours, great audio, well worth a visit.

As a Stopfordian, it is hard to surprise me with regards to local attractions, but this was a treat! It is lovely to get a feel for the history of Stockport, and go past the 60s hideousness of the main town centre. Staircase house dates from the 1500's can be found in the central market district, with lots to see... More

What a great place to visit for young and old. Been to Stockport Market over many years, but never knew what was hidden so close to the market stalls. Staircase House is well worth a visit, the staff are very helpful and you get to take round an audio commentary which explains each room in detail. Lots to see, educational... More
