The Local History Museum With Lots To See
STOP PRESS We had hoped to be opening early in August for weekend visits. We have put precautions in place, organised a one-way system and are setting up contactless payment. BUT unfortunately many of our volunteer stewards are self-isolating or shielding so we do not currently have enough people to open the Museum. We will now try to get more volunteers involved, and hope to look towards October/November. If you would like to help as a steward, please send us a message.
NIDDERDALE MUSEUM IS CLOSED in line with government guidelines due to the coronavirus pandemic (March 20th). We hope to see you later in the year. Photos from the Museum are being posted on the Facebook Page each week. Why not take a look? We are also still working on research towards an exhibition celebrating the 700th Anniversary of the granting of a Markets and Fair Charter to Pateley Bridge in 1320 (see News) Though we will now be celebrating the 701st Anniversary in 2021!
Nidderdale Museum has a large collection of exhibits, illustrating different aspects of life and work in Nidderdale through the ages. Run entirely by a dedicated team of volunteers, Nidderdale Museum has lots for visitors to see.
We have 11 separate rooms devoted to Leisure, Agriculture, Industry, Religion, Transport, Costume, plus an original Cobblers Shop, a Victorian Parlour room set, General Store, Schoolroom and much more. The Museum is a fantastic source of information and inspiration on local history, and an ideal activity for tourists and school groups.
