We welcome visits from schools and childrens groups,whether its to view our domestic and industrial artefacts or our military artefacts relating to the first and second world wars. In addition to the collections housed in the museum just adjacent to the museum in Newgate Gardens, is the Bacup Wall of History. The wall of history is made up of a collection of various stone artefacts that were collected by members over a period of about 100 years from buildings in and around Bacup and Stacksteads that were being demolished. The garden is also home to the Bacup Stocks, and a large crushing wheel. An illustrated guide of the stones is available.
