DESCRIPTION

Travel through time and around the world at Warrington Museum & Art Gallery, one of the oldest municipal museums in the country. Opened in 1857, much of the quintessential character of the building has been preserved and its original glass cabinets are crammed with treasures from all around the world.

The permanent galleries feature a wealth of material on the natural world including Warrington's very own dinosaur. Also popular are the local and social history galleries featuring new displays on the industries that shaped the town and a fascinating 'Time Tunnel' complete with hands on history activities for younger visitors. Popular exhibits include the beautifully decorated Egyptian painted coffin on Priest Paikhmennu from the temple of Amun in Thebes.

In addition to the permanent displays the museum provides an award-winning programme of events and temporary exhibitions. Recent shows have featured work by Banksy, Tracey Emin and Sam Taylor-Wood, and the museum runs free family-friendly craft activities in the school holidays.
