Owner description: Located above Warrington Central Library, Warrington Museum is one of the oldest municipal museums in the country. Much of the quintessential character of the building has been preserved and its original glass cabinets are crammed with treasures from all over the world. Work from acclaimed artists is also on display in the art gallery, and there is a lively program of events, activities and temporary exhibitions. Admission is free!

“Warrington History”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

The displays have been updated, but there is not very much about Warrington History, some displays seem totally random and not linked to this area at all.
The Art Gallery is much improved

“Cultural quarter? what culture?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

As one of englands largest towns, boasting a 'cultural quarter' one would at least expect to see a theatre, not just the 'jaded' Parr Hall which isnt even an attractive concert hall in comparison to those in other Northern post industrial towns such as Rochdale, Bury, Huddersfield , Halifax etc.- much more could be done with this 'the only' attractive part of trhe town centre with the exception of the town hall gates and the parish church..

Museum and gallery provide basic facilities / exhibits/ its all just 'ok', which about sums the town centre up
