“GOOD SELECTION OF EXHIBITS”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a very well-run Museum and Art Gallery, that holds some interesting and inspiring exhibits and Shows. It has a close relationship with Blackburn College/University Arts and Media Dept., where I'm currently studying for my final year in the BA(Hons) Fine Art Degree. The cafe is very reasonable.

“School holiday time well spent....(wouldn't be able to go at any other time!)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Easter holiday visit with 2 kids. Enjoyed very much and found it very interesting, great for a free free couple of hours and in town centre! Kids loved the activities. Highly recommended. Love the textile history section, as a result of the Lewis museum closure years ago. My only complaint about the museum, being a blackburn resident, is that it isn't open at weekends which is when many people, especially children, are actually able to visit! I thinks it's also closed Mondays, so that's most bank holidays out too. It used to be open weekends and but no longer due to budget cuts I'm guessing. Should open sat or/and sun and maybe 2 or 3 weekdays.
