My wife's maiden name was Cheshire so it was very poignant. Good displays with informative staff, shop was as cheap as amazon for same goods.

Ver informative museum telling Nantwichs history with emphasis on salt and dairy and the civil war battle that I knew very little about.
Well worth a visit and making a donation as its free.
Well done Nantwich council

This is a lovely little museum full of interesting exhibits relating to local history. I particularly liked the herb planter outside the main entrance which commemorates John Gerard, who wrote the famous 'Herball' back in the sixteenth century - the planter is a very appropriate memorial to this Nantwich man! On the day of my visit, there was a special craft event for children who were busily making Easter eggs, gardens, cards etc. It was good to see so many youngsters enjoying their local museum. Fascinating exhibits relating to the local salt and cheese industries. Well worth a visit.
