Discover a hidden heritage… Weaver Hall Museum and Workhouse is full of displays and tales of the history and industry of West Cheshire. The stories are told through films, reconstructions, models and displays of intriguing artefacts relating to market towns, transport, archaeology, the famous Cheshire salt industry and the museum building’s former history.

The museum is housed within the old Northwich Union Workhouse building. A special display in the former workhouse schoolroom explores life for the paupers, the dismal diet and the harsh work routine.

We have a coffee shop with a selection of hot and cold drinks, biscuits and flapjacks. There is a pub next door for those looking for hot food.

    Road Directions

    The museum is situated on the A533 (London Road) about half a mile south of Northwich town centre. It is well signed (follow the brown signs) from the A556 and is approximately a 30 minute drive from Chester and 40 minutes from Liverpool and Manchester. If you are approaching from the town centre, make sure you indicate and turn right immediately after passing under the railway viaduct. We have a large free car park which can accommodate coach parties. The museum is fully accessible with designated disable parking bays, accessible toilets, a lift to first floor level and a hearing induction loop in the mini-cinema.
