“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

Roger J, Manager at Warrington Museum & Art Gallery, responded to this review, August 4, 2014
I'm sorry to hear you weren't particularly impressed with your visit to Warrington and the museum. Please bear in mind that the exhibitions at the museum change every few months and we have opened a brand new gallery since your visit, the Cabinet of Curiosities, housed in what was the very tired looking Bird Room. I hope you will consider visiting again and that you will enjoy the new displays.
