Our transformation

Courtyard gallery with family

Brampton Museum is back, bigger and better than ever thanks to an £850,000 re-development. A huge thank you to National Lottery players, Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council and everyone who raised the money. 

What's new?

  • New ground floor displays including the recreation of Mrs Mosley's parlour with talking portrait

What's still to come?

  • A research room perfect for browsing old photographs, documents and discovering your family roots

Old favourites here to stay

  • The popular gallery of childhood and Victorian Street scene can be visited on the museum's first floor
  • Brampton park contains an aviary, sandpit, play area, ride-on model railway, wildlife area, picnic area and sensory garden

Helping the environment

  • Our new exhibition space, education room, event space and meeting rooms are powered by solar panels and an environmentally friendly air source heat pump
  • Our cafe uses locally sourced food and it is always served with crockery and glasses, not single use plastic
  • Any food waste is recycled- with even our leftover salad feeding the birds in the aviary!
