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

Students and local history researchers are welcome to make use of a wide range of resource material by appointment. The Mary Rochester library in the museum contains books and articles on the local history of the area and the salt and chemical industries in Cheshire. The library is named after one of the early curators of the museum who built up a wealth of resources connected to the salt industry in Cheshire.
