Some of the paintings in there are magnificent in both the depth of colour and the sheer size. the history of Warrington is laid bare especially its Cromwell days.

Worth a visit. There are some interesting displays and exhibits and nicely gives you the history of Warrington. However, my favourite section was that devoted to the 1966 World Cup! On the downside, I some of the lighting so dim that I couldn't read the info and, it's very minor, but we warned, as it may not have been fixed,... More

This place was nice for a visit on a rainy day, it felt a little deserted midday during the week, and most of the rooms were darkened an felt disused, but maybe that's the historical building. Some really interesting art pieces and displays, but my son wanted to be able to touch more and get more hands on than this... More

My first stay in Warrington and as a ex-Londoner, I was really surprised that there could be a museum of such quality in Warrington! You really wouldn't expect something like this if you walk around the surrounding area.....It is not big but has some really good collections and interesting exhibitions. It is very well organised and therefore not only enjoyable... More

This is an excellent free attraction, so many interesting local history pieces. A great museum for kids because it isn't too big and the staff are really friendly.

had a great time, the museum has had a revamp since my last visit. I enjoyed the gallery dedicated to Mr Smiths and the natural history section. Very nice staff, a clean and tidy place to visit and a lift to help get to all floors.
