Macclesfield grew and changed during the Victorian times due to the success of the Silk Industry. We have a large collection of Victorian artefacts, many of which are handling objects. 

We have a number of ways for you and your students to explore this important time in Macclesfield’s history.  We are taking bookings for our Victorian experience in the museum, we have loan boxes for you to use in the classroom, we have several immersive videos for you to share with your class and a set of online resources.
