Now fully open after a complete makeover, the Museum stands high on Castle Hill, in the shadow of the Castle Keep, an image which has dominated Clitheroe's skyline for over 800 years.

Explore our 'hands-on' galleries, collections and displays which reveal amazing stories and take you on a journey through 350 millions years of history.

Experience `super' family friendly displays and exhibitions which will provide you with reasons to come back again and again.

Need time to take it all in? Then pause for a taste of Lancashire food in our contemporary café which merges traditional with new. Indulge with homemade cake and coffee whilst slowly unwinding in a location which enjoys stunning panoramic views.
