Cafe and shop
The museum cafe is open every Saturday when the museum is open from 10am to 4pm and also on Thursdays in the school holidays.
It serves reasonably priced light lunches, snacks, hot drinks and delicious cakes in the comfortable surroundings of the museum’s Halifax Room. The cafe is run by the museum volunteers and all proceeds go to the museum.
You don’t need to visit the museum to pop into our cafe and shop. Have a cuppa and a cake and help the museum !
The museum shop stocks a variety of locally made hand crafted products, together with a wide range of local history publications, prints and postcards. In addition we cater to those with a sweet tooth offering locally produced sweets and chocolate, including Quality Street and Joseph Dobson & Sons products. The shop is open every Saturday 10am to 4pm, but please contact the museum if you are interested in purchasing any items from the shop when we are closed. We are also able to accept payment online and post out selected items.
