About the event

The museum’s permanent collection includes some remarkable exhibits including an original letter written by Florence Nightingale written from Balaclava. In addition, the First World War: Returning Home exhibition provides an insight into what a soldier invalided back from the Front would have found on returning to Cheshire. Using local examples wherever possible, the exhibition covers aspects such as medical advances, the psychological effects of war, volunteering and volunteer nurses, a doctor’s country practice, rural life and social welfare.

Requests for disabled access need to be made in advance by phoning 01244 512126 during office hours, Monday to Friday.
