• Museum Closure:
    Friday 11th October 2019
    It is with great sadness that we inform you of the peaceful death of Peter Boughton, Keeper of Art
    for West Cheshire Museums, after a short illness. Peter will be greatly missed by all his colleagues
    for his commitment to public access, his tireless work to improve the collections
    within his custodianship and his infectious humour.
    In order for his friends and colleagues to pay their respects the museum will be closed on Friday
    11th October 2019.
    School groups that have pre-booked sessions will still be accommodated.
    We will reopen as usual on Saturday 12th October.
