We are always happy to organise tours for groups. Tours are scheduled at times when the Museum is closed to other visitors. We are able to offer these again, after a break because of Covid. Available again in April.
We are also happy to provide a speaker to local groups, to talk about Hand-loom weaving and Newtown's boom and bust in the 1800s or similar topics.
