“School holiday time well spent....(wouldn't be able to go at any other time!)”

Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery
Ranked #5 of 29 things to do in Blackburn
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 April 2013 via mobile

Easter holiday visit with 2 kids. Enjoyed very much and found it very interesting, great for a free free couple of hours and in town centre! Kids loved the activities. Highly recommended. Love the textile history section, as a result of the Lewis museum closure years ago. My only complaint about the museum, being a blackburn resident, is that it isn't open at weekends which is when many people, especially children, are actually able to visit! I thinks it's also closed Mondays, so that's most bank holidays out too. It used to be open weekends and but no longer due to budget cuts I'm guessing. Should open sat or/and sun and maybe 2 or 3 weekdays.

I had an hour to spare, whilst in Blackburn, so I popped in here, and I was pleased that I did. There was loads to look at, and plenty of interesting exhibits.
Well worth a look.

Enjoyable visit. We saw many intriguing articles from WW1 to Egyptian mummies! This secret treasure is tucked away just around the corner from the main shopping centre and well worth a visit....it's also FREE!
