How to get here

The museum is situated on the A533 (London Road) about half a mile south of Northwich town centre.  It is well signed (follow the brown signs) from the A556 and is approximately a 30 minute drive from Chester and 40 minutes from Liverpool and Manchester.  If you are approaching from the town centre, make sure you indicate and turn right immediately after passing under the railway viaduct.  We have a large free car park which can accommodate coach parties

Access issues

The museum is fully accessible with designated disable parking bays, accessible toilets, a lift to first floor level and a hearing induction loop in the mini-cinema.

Shop and Coffee Shop

The museum has a well-stocked shop with local books, postcards, DVDs and attractive souvenirs.  We have a coffee shop with a selection of hot and cold drinks, biscuits and flapjacks.  There is a pub next door for those looking for hot food.


Students and local history researchers are welcome to make use of a wide range of resource material by appointment.  The museum library contains books and articles on the local history of the area and the salt industry in Cheshire.
