Wonderful museum. Full of fascinating exhibits connected to the silk industry. It’s well worth booking the guided tour of the mill. Very interesting & the working machinery was fascinating. It’s the third time I’ve taken friends who are visiting Macclesfield there, and they have all been very impressed.
The Tunnicliffe exhibits are also beautiful

Best museum we’ve visited in a long, long time. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the silk mill, so steeped in history and the tour guide was superb and bought the mill alive with his commentary. Incredible to see the looms working and hear about the day to day workings of the mill and all of the intricate processes - the chance to do interactive activities really made a difference too, especially with the younger members of our party.

Being retired we visit an awful lot of museums, the Silk Museum is one of the best. The static displays in the main museum are very interesting but the real gem is Paradise Mill next door where you can go on a tour, see the machines in action and learn a great deal about silk weaving. Make sure you book a tour, otherwise you are missing a treat.

In the museum there are 1940 maps of Germany printed on silk which airmen could screw up very small, hide them amongst their clothes and then use them to plan their escape if they were shot down. My son, who is in the RAF, has a map of Afghanistan printed on silk, they still issue silk maps to airmen just in case they get trapped behind enemy lines! A low tech solution but it works.

Absolutely fascinating place - Mill and Museum. A brilliantly knowledgeable and engaging guide, Daniel, led a tour around the mill which was simply overwhelming. A real glimpse into a rich piece of history the mill is an absolute gem - do not miss this experience. Daniel shared lots of little stories about the silk manufacturing history and process which really enhanced the experience. Cannot recommend this place enough. I just made the tour in time by accident so make sure you book a slot.

The museum is beautiful. So much to see and read and it's all incredible. My mind was blown.

I strongly suggest giving this place a full half day e.g. tour in the morning - break - then the museum or vice versa. There's a little tea shop attached for the break. There's a lot to see and soak in and it can get rather overwhelming with all the info and machinery to examine. I was there for 3 hours and I could have stayed another hour easily but had a very long drive back home so needed to leave.

Trust me - don't rush. It's beautiful.

We booked a visit because the weather was wet, and what an amazing experience it was! Daniel was such an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who made it so interesting for both adults and children. You get such a real experience of how the silk cloth was produced - incredibly intricate - snd what the atmosphere would have been like as a mill worker. Come see the very first “computers” and how they were programmed. Would recommend a visit to anyone, snd schools studying the Victorians and machinery history. FABULOUS!!!

Although the museum size was reduced due to the COVID restrictions the tour around Paradise mill was superb. Our guide was Daniel and his knowledge and passion was infectious. This is a rare example of a working silk mill in an area where there are only two remaining and to see the intricacies of the machines which are still working provides an invaluable insight into the lives of those now gone. Anyone living or visiting the Macclesfield really must put this on a wish list. Our history and heritage needs to be preserved and it’s the visitors who help maintain these excellent gems so that children in the future can understand the hardships of the past.

We pre-booked the Silk Museum online and visited on a cold wet Saturday the weekend before lockdown 2. The tickets are free but donations are welcome.

The young man on the desk was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the museum and mill. Unfortunately the mill is still closed at present due to Covid but we watched a video film all about it. The young man came and explained a few processes in the mill, it is nice to see someone so passionate about the subject. It looks fascinating, like stepping back in time and we hope to visit again when it re-opens. The small museum is housed in one room and is full of interesting Egyptian artefacts and items from the silk industry in Macclesfield.

There is a gift shop (expensive we thought) and toilets.

We enjoyed our visit and hope to visit the Paradise Mill soon.

You get to learn a lot about old Macclesfield all about fashion and silkworms! It's an ok price, but maybe a bit too boring for younger children!

A really interesting & informative tour makes you value silk as a fabric & how hard people had to work.
