Company Profile
Nantwich Museum is an independent charitable trust that has now been running for nearly 40 years (look out for our anniversary events next year)! We tell the story of Nantwich’s rich history by collecting, safeguarding and making accessible local artefacts and by providing a centre for the inspiration, learning and enjoyment of all.

We have a Cheese Room and more a recent Civil War Centre, which tells visitors all about the 1644 Battle of Nantwich. We also have our Millennium Gallery which hosts temporary, community exhibitions throughout the year.

The Museum is an accredited museum and relies on grants and the support of its members and volunteers to ensure its continued operation. Approximately 50 volunteers help the Museum in some way, ranging from welcoming visitors on the reception desk to carrying out research. The Museum offers services including education workshops and room hire and takes part in town events such as Holly Holy Day and the Nantwich Food Festival.

Our next major project will be the redevelopment of our Main Gallery with the aim to better tell those important local stories.
What We Do
The Museum provides free addmission to its permanent and temporary exhibitions. We have a programme of changing exhibitions in our Millennium and Community Galleries, which includes artists, community groups, history displays and the work of local children. We also display work in our upstairs room.

We have an education service which is available to children from reception age all the way to college. Topics delivered include the Tudors, Fire of Nantwich, Victorians, WW2, local study and toys. We also tailor sessions to more specific needs of teachers. We also offer guided tours and talks about the history of the town, as well as outreach sessions. During the school holidays we provide workshops.

We try to get involved in as many events taking place in the town as possible including Holly Holy Day, the Arts Festival and the Jazz and Blues Festival.

We have a good relationship with St Mary's Church and other organisations within the town such as the Children's Centre and Library and are always enthusiastic to develop working relationships within the community.
