We have to close the Silk Museum again … But we’re working hard behind the scenes in these uncertain times.
We have Good News!
We are thrilled to announce that Macclesfield Museums are the winners of the Textile Society ‘Museum, Archive and Conservation Award 2020’.
The Textile Society award will fund a new project enabling us to research and conserve our Macclesfield Stripe Collection >> READ MORE HERE.
The Old Sunday School building on Roe St, Macclesfield, has received a financial boost from the government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund to help fund repairs during the coronavirus pandemic. >> READ MORE HERE.
YOUR MUSEUM NEEDS YOU
The pandemic has forced the Museum to shut for much of this year. Closed doors and greatly reduced tourism have dealt Macclesfield Museums a huge financial blow.
Please help us today: Every donation, of any size, makes an important difference in helping our work with our local community and preserving our collections. Please consider giving what you can. Thank-you.
KEEP IN TOUCH:
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.
