Really enjoyed a couple of hours at the Weaver Hall. Went to see if I could find out more about the working lives of boatmen on the River Weaver as I have family links from the mid 1800's. This aspect not covered but the history of the boatyards and the salt industry well covered without being too much. Some great photos and artefacts too. There is much more from earlier times and my other half was much impressed by the roman helmet found locally. We also enjoyed the short introductory film about the workhouse in the retro cinema

Occupies part of what was the Northwich Workhouse but also covers other local interests including salt extraction. Some good displays but can be noisy if schools visiting (Not the children - the man giving the talk who felt it necessary to shout to keep their attention) Free easy parking. If you are also visiting the Lion Salt Works come here first as you will get 10% off 2nd visit which will be worth more than the other way round.

What a fantastic gem of a place. They organise a lot of events during school holidays, things like making pop bottle rockets and wind chimes. I have two children under 5 and they both absolutely love it. It’s always extremely well organised and the guys that run the events are very engaging and welcoming. It’s also very reasonably priced. Can’t recommend it enough.

Thanks very much for your review. The holiday activities are really popular and there are a lot of interactive displays in the museum including a pianola! The museum is really popular for school visits with the same engaging and welcoming staff.

Quite disappointed with this place very little incite into the workhouse which is what we went to see, although inexpensive the place lacks any real atmosphere of the past with the one exception the old school room, had the whole building been similar to this one room my review would have been glowing, staff lovely but I can see why number of visitors must be dire

I'm really sorry you were disappointed with the Museum. We have tried to get the balance between the Workhouse and the Museum which tells the stories of the history of central Cheshire including its Roman significance, transport, social history, the salt and the growth of the industries which changed the world. The tiny cinema and the original seats was established when the Northwich Regal closed. We hope you'll come again to one of the temporary exhibitions or quirky events which take place throughout the year.

As we were staying close to this Museum we visited it before the Lion Salt Works. We were pleasantly surprised on how well this Museum was presented and the content which not only included the history of and life surrounding the workhouse but also information on poverty in the area, Salt Mining, artefacts from the Roman era, and other facts on local life in the 19th and early 20th century. Well worth a visit.
