  • Very good local source of information regarding the history of rochdale. The exhibition area hosts plenty of local talent and the shop/cafe has good bits to buy
  • The museum is free and they often have things on during holidays to keep children entertained and often helping children to get back in touch with nature.
  • Great library and an amazing small museum of Rochdale's history, Internet access is also available here, Beware :closed on Mondays
  • Good to take family here. Friendly staff and you get to learn old history visually like a museum.
  • Very small museum with a bit of local history. It really is nice considering it's free to enter.
