Christmas at the Museums

There’s lots to see and do at Macclesfield’s museums this Christmas.

At the Silk Museum on Park Lane, as well as our unparalleled collection of silk heritage you’ll find Maker’s Place, a must if you’re looking for beautiful unique and bespoke gifts for Christmas, and our new Silk Shop, home to a gorgeous selection of silk goods and quality gifts. Both are open until 8pm on Thursdays in December, for late night shopping.
