All West Cheshire Museums will be temporarily closed to the public from 5pm today Friday 20 March 2020 until further notice, following advice from Public Health England. Our Museum team are planning to make activity templates accessible for families and consider how we can make the collections accessible on-line whilst they can’t be enjoyed in person.
