“OK but surprised to have to pay.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

OK, nothing is really free but though interesting at a local level this is not great value for money and not the sort of [place to travel to see. OK to fill in a wet hour of which there are plenty in Saddleworth.

“Just right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We enjoyed our visit to the Museum which provides an informative history of the area and the development of the textile industry. Interesting to see the various looms and carding machines on display. We visited many years ago, and the displays have improved significantly. Just enough to see without getting tiresome. There is a small charge but well worth it.
