“Great if you have an interest in hats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Stockport is famous for it's hats, in fact my husband was surprised to buy a hat in Detroit USA which was made in Stockport.

The museum is free to enter and has an array of hats from normal to unusual as well as hats that celebrities has worn over time.

The museum takes you through the process of making hats and is very entertaining and gives you a great insight.

The staff are friendly and helpful too and there is a internet cafe and shop too.

“Great morning out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Lots of interest in this museum despite unassuming shop-like frontage. Kept interest of kids and adults alike. Great collection of hats plus manufacturing floor. Tour took an hour, so skipped that as had young kids with us, but spent an hour and a half here, with coffee break in cafe. Would recommend!

“Really Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

It was so interesting, informative and interactive, it actually made hats interesting. Shows how hats are made, the different kinds and eras, and had loads of colourful hats on display. Really good trip, especially to take kids, as theres interactive elements for them to play with.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

I have been doing a lot of research on my family tree, a lot of family from the Stockport area, working in the hat mills. Very interesting tour with the guide for a small nominal fee, worth a visit.
