For some 2,000 years Cheshire has been a centre of the salt industry and today it is the only place in Britain where salt is produced on a large scale. Housed in the old Northwich Workhouse, the Salt Museum tells the fascinating story of this unique industrial heritage. The whole family will discover a completely new side to something we all take for granted with the help of videos, models, old photographs, paintings and traditional working tools. You will find out more about mining, working conditions, subsidence and transport history.
A tailored service may include guided walks, hands on science and living history sessions and it is provided to all groups. All the groups like Cub Scouts, schools, WI and universities enjoy a visit to the Salt Museum.

All galleries are now fully accessible following the installation of a lift.
