This museum is handily placed in the center of Stockport alongside the market hall and St. Mary's Parish Church. It covers local history and life in an interesting manner with good displays. The staircase house in and of itself is worth visiting. Having been there...More

Stockport's oldest townhouse dating back to the 15th century is in the historic market place and has been lovingly and painstakingly restored, and gives a real picture of how the families lived through the years.
