Visiting Stockport museums

From Thursday 27 January face coverings are no longer mandatory in public venues. However, we would encourage you to still wear one when you're visiting one of our museums.

We recommend you book a time slot before you visit our museums as only a limited number of tickets will be available each day for walk-up visitors.


For more information and to book your ticket visit our online ticket office.
