2014 was the 200th anniversary of the Old Sunday School building and to celebrate, a new special exhibition exploring the history of this fantastic building was installed. On the ground floor, follow the story of the Old Sunday School building, discover local archaeology 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, showing 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 the town!), the 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.

The Old Sunday School has stood in the centre of Macclesfield since 1814- in 2014 to celebrate the building's 200th birthday we launched our 'Digital Windowpane Project'. Through the project we are raising money to fund the refurbishment of our Georgian windows. To find out how you can get involved in this project, please follow the link below:
