Welcome to Macclesfield Museums

We have to close the Silk Museum again …

Following the government’s latest announcement on the new national restrictions, Macclesfield’s Silk Museum will close to visitors from 5pm on Wednesday 4 November. Whilst these restrictions are disappointing news for us, the safety of our staff and our visitors is our priority.

Please note Paradise Mill and West Park Museum will also remain closed.

We will continue to care for our collections and buildings and look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we can.

Keep in touch through our website, enjoy the creative activities on macclesfieldmuseums.co.uk/museum-from-home and @maccmuseums on facebook & instagram

We have been very grateful for the support from our visitors during these challenging times. Your donations will help us continue to provide quality experiences for all our visitors and communities. Your support makes a real difference – thank you.
