The Textile Museum in Newtown

Our museum just over the bridge into Commercial Street, gives visitors a chance to see how the handloom weavers of the mid-19th century lived and worked.

Thinking of Joining Us

We are always keen on recruiting additional volunteers to join our friendly team of volunteer hosts for the summer season even though we are have closed for now. Hosts receive training and work in pairs to run the museum on the days it is open to the public. Now is a great time to get involved, there are are still jobs that need to be done over the winter.
We can arrange for you to visit the Museum so we can tell you about the ways you can share in telling our story. Email us at:

We all need friends.  The Museum needs Friends too. We encourage you to join the NTM Friends group to help us keep the Museum open and vibrant into the future.  Check out the How to Help page for details.
