Tour Information

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. 

An information sheet on our tour arrangements is available.
