The Heritage Centre is the permanent home of Horwich Heritage and a permanent exhibition is on display there for viewing by the general pubic on the above days and times.

There are several exhibition areas in the new Centre, one of them being Horwich Loco Works, which includes a three-quarter scale model of a locomotive footplate. Other areas include a Victorian kitchen, local industry, a Horwich pub, childhood, local sport, Leverhulme's Rivington and transport. A new part of the exhibition will include a reconstruction of the entrance to Wilderswood Mine and the actual Fall Birch Tollgate post.

There are also temporary exhibitions from time to time, often following on from special Open Days like The Life & Times of George Fisher.
