So have a lot of the exhibits, unlike many community museums it hasn't moved on as much as it should have. It's worth a look if you haven't been for a long while

Not a great deal to look at, but what there is there is fascinating. Good area for children to colour in relevant pictures

Very enjoyable. Only 4 people there when we went. Gives an insight into the history of Macclesfield and the families who put so much back. Egyptian artefacts and really interesting engravings.

I've lived near the area for many years and never been to the the museum. It's a little gem. We had a good family day out and walked into the West Park afterwards which is very good if you have children.

Only a small one room museum, but absolutely fascinating. Amazing what can be in one room, plus there is a special area for children where they can draw and colour. Well worth a visit, but check opening times first as the museum is only open...More
