The Old Sunday School
The Old Sunday School

2014 was the 200th anniversary of the Sunday School building and to celebrate we installed a new special exhibition exploring the history of this fantastic building. On the ground floor follow the history of this Sunday School building, discover local archeaology and enjoy one of our temporary exhibitions. On the lower floor the displays illustrate how Macclesfield developed and grew from a market town to an important player in the Silk Industry and shows the range of mills that thrived here.

The Old Sunday School is not just a Museum it also houses The Old Sunday School Shop, Cinemac (the only Cinema in town!), Teakitchen Cafe and Makers Place. It runs a lively programme of events throughout the year suitable for children and adults and every Wednesday during the school holidays we offer drop-in craft sessions for children of all ages.
