Venue type: Indoor

Congleton Museum tells the fascinating story of the area from prehistoric times, through the English Civil War, and the heyday of the textile industry to the Second World War.

There are 4 major themes in the main exhibition gallery, all associated with the town's past, each presented through interactive touch screen screens, a relief map of the town, and talking heads! The collections span over 4,000 years, with information about prehistory gathered through archaeology, a series of exhibits that chronicle the English civil war, plus an exploration into the impact of the Industrial Revolution on the local area. You can also find out about Congleton's role during WWII, as it was home to many evacuees, and its local industry was busy working on the war effort. You can also learn about Congleford's own Victoria Cross holder!

The museum also houses a gift shop, which specialises in local history items and souvenirs (many of which are at pocket money prices), plus over 70 booklets written by local historians.

The museum is free to visit, but donations are very welcome, as despite most of the staff being volunteers, it still costs £1,000 a week to maintain and develop the museum.
