  • THE fascinating history of one of Cheshire's most attractive and historic towns is brought to life by Nantwich Museum.

    Located in Pillory Street, at the heart of the town, the museum has main galleries telling the story of Nantwich through the ages - Roman salt making, Tudor Nantwich's Great Fire, the Civil War Battle of Nantwich (1644) and the more recent shoe and clothing industries.

    Beyond the galleries lie two extensions. The first with its cheese-making exhibition and useful Joseph Heler meeting room, is dedicated to demonstrating how the county's famous cheese has traditionally been made and sold around the floral market town of Nantwich.

    Next is the magnificent, prize-winning Millennium Gallery which provides the perfect home for a diverse programme of temporary exhibitions.

    With facilities available to local community groups, Nantwich Museum is a vibrant hub of local interest. Enter through the door of Nantwich's former Victorian Jubilee library and discover our exciting museum for yourself.

    The museum is financially supported by :

    • The National Heritage Lottery Fund

    • Cheshire County Council

    • Crewe and Nantwich Borough Council

    • Nantwich Town Council
