The library is good, there is an aquarium downstairs with piranhas and upstairs there is a dinosaur, Egyptian mummy and local painting exhibition - all for free. Whats not to like?!

Bolton Museum & art Gallery a great day out for the kids, it is not the biggest museum and gallery but lots to see and do.
Car parking can be an issue, but plenty of pay and display near bye, the museum and gallery is next door to Bolton Town Hall when you enter the museum there is a fish aquarium in the basement.
The art gallery is a very interesting place with guest also exhibitions shown.
There is a very good Egyptian exhibitions centre as well as the usual local interest exhibitions as Bolton was once a big part of the cotton trade, well worth the time to have a look around, good library also.
