Weaver Hall Museum and Workhouse is full of displays and tales of the history and industry of West Cheshire. The stories are told through films, reconstructions, models and displays of intriguing artefacts relating to market towns, transport, archaeology, the famous Cheshire salt industry and the museum building’s former history.
The museum is housed within the old Northwich Union Workhouse building. A special display in the former workhouse schoolroom explores life for the paupers, who had a dismal diet and a harsh work routine.
