The museum welcomes pre-booked group visits from UK and international groups throughout the year. Although we are open to the public Wednesday-Saturday, private group visits can be arranged on Mondays and Tuesdays, subject to availability.

We advise booking a talk from one of our knowledgeable staff members as part of your visit to fully appreciate the history of 31 Toad Lane. We will take you on an entertaining and informative journey through the history of the Rochdale Pioneers and how they established the first successful consumer co-operative in the world here in the birthplace of the modern co-operative movement. 

We also offer a refreshments package as part of your visit to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of our museum.
