    Interesting history of the Mill Industry and local "Accrington Pals" who lost their lives on the Western Front. Some good natural history examples too including Birds of Prey.  more »

  • What a fantastic place to visit! There is lots and lots to see from industrial heritage, natural history and an amazing collection of prints to masterpieces. Couple all the treasures on display with workshops including workshops with the amazingly pretty printing press on the first fore and this museum becomes a must visit location for anyone.
  • Great museum for a free activity. Plenty for the kids to do
  • Fantastic content full of history
  • A surprising hidden gem. Highlights are an excellent egyptology collection and Bowlder's collection of beetles. Also has a textiles machinery exhibition, local history gallery, natural history, fine art and two temporary exhibition spaces. Plan your visit carefully because the opening times are very limited.
  • Nice Museum, highly recommended
