Congleton Museum

Market Square, CongletonEast, Cheshire, UK CW12 1ET

Touch-screens and talking heads help to tell the story of Congleton from prehistoric times, through the English Civil War and the heyday of the textile industry to the Second World War.

The museum offers access to research facilities, room hire, education days and guided history walks.

Congleton Museum Trust, a registered charity, was formed in 1985 by a group of local history enthusiasts to pull together as much as possible of the history of Congleton and to explore ways of exhibiting it to the community. It was 2002 before the trust managed to open the museum in the former police station next to the Town Hall. There was by then a wealth of fascinating artefacts to display, including an Anglo Saxon log boat, a burial urn from 1500 BC,two major coin hoards from the 17th Century, plus numerous items of historical interest from more recent times.
