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 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.
