Me and my little girl are regular visitors here. Little one loves the fact that you can touch the objects and listen to the audio. She really enjoyed the acorn hunt. Staff are all fantastic and helpful.

This is a museum with a difference and would suit all ages. One can wander around at one's own pace, experiencing life in a town house through different periods.

We've lived in Stockport but never knew of this delightful hidden gem. If it were more widely known or in a more visited location I believe the admission would be incrementally higher.

Entrance costs £4.75 for adults. They give an audio guide full of information. You can touch almost everything and you can try on clothes. It's so much fun and it is very informative about the life style of people in 17th century. I had a great time with friends. It's great for children

You literally walk thru many historic periods which Stockport has seen, as well as learning something about the history of the house itself and the people who lived in/visited it. There are a few activities as well, Definitely worth a visit!

This is an amazing house, beautifully restored and you would never believe it was there if you were standing in the street outside. Really enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend it to others.

Delighted with my tour of Staircase House, hadn't realised what a little treasure we had on our doorsteps! Lovely to walk around and see all the different rooms and glimpse into the history of Stockport.
