A fab museum, packed with information about the local area. Free to enter, Stockport Story Museum has four floors of displays. We especially enjoyed the collection of Victorian memorial/mourning items. Definitely worth a visit.

Lovely local museum, covering so many aspects of Stockport's history, from brick making, coal mining, brewing, transport, the police, fire brigade and local sporting endeavours. A couple of lovely Lowry painings, and other local paintings, and loads for the children t0 do. Recommended.
