Attraction Information

  • Museums and Art Galleries icon Museums and Art Galleries

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Indoor

Portland Basin Museum is housed within the restored nineteenth century Ashton Canal Warehouse in Ashton-under-Lyne. The museum combines a lively modern interior with a peaceful canal side setting and is an exciting family friendly museum.

Step back in time on a 1920s street, as the sights and sounds of bygone Tameside are brought to life. Take a look into the kitchen and parlour to find out how we used to live. Explore industrial heritage and discover what life was like down the mines, or on the farm. Find out more about local crafts and industries and marvel at historic machines.

Younger children will love the Nuts and Bolts educational play area, suitable for children under 5.
