Macclesfield Museums are home to a wide variety of fascinating collections. Whether you are interested in machinery, textile design, costumes, fine art or Ancient Egypt, there is always something for you to discover in our displays and archives.
There is often lots happening behind the scenes that you might not see when visiting a museum. At Macclesfield Museums, the on-going research of volunteers is constantly increasing our understanding of the museums’ collections in exciting ways. Through our Online Exhibitions, we can share some of this fascinating new work with you no matter where in the world you may live.
Please note: Although the Silk Museum is open Mon-Sat 10am-4pm all year round (excluding Bank Holidays) our research, archival and loan resources are currently closed for essential conservation maintenance. 10/01/2020
