Cabinet of curiosities

Amazing place a must is The Cabinet of Curiosities, so much magic in one room, then there is the Grayson Perry pot, art exhibitions and other curios, and best of all it's free!

Good place to take kids on a rainy day. Very interesting. By no means a full day out but a nice distraction.

Lovely little place in a beautiful building. Staff are very knowledgeable and helpful, good exhibits with excellent all round visability and right height for smaller children. Always seem to have something for children. Highly recommended for childrens Summer holidays when weather not so good.

I was in Warrington town centre on a rainy Saturday afternoon recently. I nipped into the museum for a few minutes to stay dry and to have a quick look around. I was still there two hours later!
