Welcome to Macclesfield Museums

While our doors may currently be closed due to Coronavirus, we’re doing as much as we can over the coming weeks to bring our museum to your home – helping support your creativity and mental wellbeing.

During Lockdown, people of Macclesfield and surrounding areas have shown their true community spirit and support for each other, the NHS and other front-line staff.
People have been spreading hope and support through displaying rainbows in their windows and outside their homes.

A huge thanks go to all the children and young adults who helped celebrate our creative solidarity with a Virtual Exhibition of Rainbows…. Enjoy!

Crafting activities, puzzles, stories over on our Museums from Home Blog

Creative & engaging resources for Teachers and Home Schooling, with KS1 and KS2 curriculum lesson planning ideas. Downloadable content for  Victorians, Ancient Egypt, WWII and The Silk Industry.

Stories of our Collections Behind-the-scenes and some of the great work we do at the museums with help from volunteers and your donations.

Online Virtual Exhibitions  Join in and help us create our first Virtual Exhibition, ‘Rainbows’.

With best wishes from us all.
