Heritage Centre Silk Museum
Park Lane Galleries
The Silk Museum within the Heritage Centre follows the story of silk from its origins in China, along the silk route to Britain and its establishment in Macclesfield.
An award winning audio-visual presentation tells of the development of the industry in the town from the perspective of various people involved in the silk industry.
The story of silk comes to an end as we consider how silk is used in fashion.
Costume, textiles and accessories from both the 19th and 20th century help to show how silk is used for some of the most important occasions in both the social calendar and family life.
