Visits on site

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 also be arranged on Mondays and Tuesdays, subject to availability.*

* Due to current Covid Safe measures, we must limit groups to 20 and private bookings outside our opening hours.

As part of you visit 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. 

You can download our information pack and booking form below. To book your visit, simply fill in the booking form and email it to [email protected]. If you have any further questions about your visit feel free to email them or reach us via phone on 01706 524920.
