  • Really surprising level of curiosities, art and exhibits. Definitely worth a visit, I couldn't be more impressed given the fact it's next to a small library.
  • We came for the contemporary arts festival launch as a group and I would just like to say a big thank you to the staff at Warrington museum - it was a fabulous evening! It was great to be able to roam around the other exhibits and meet like minded enthusiasts. What a fantastic museum & art gallery we have here in Warrington.
