We want to thank visitors to our website for all their help

While our museum has been closed we have been thinking about how to better understand what our visitors want to see and experience when then can come back safely.

So we asked what is important to you and these are the majority results so far:

Most people who responded have visited us before

Most people visit us or use our website to find out how the movement started

We asked you about the things you were most interested in and you said:

You want to know about the lives of the Pioneers themselves and Rochdale in the 19th Century

You want to know about experiences of working for a co-op

We asked you what you would like us to do in the future:

70% of you want to access our collections online in some way

Lots of you want to see new play and learn facilities in our Rochdale museum

You can still help us

We are now asking about the types of objects you would like to see and as well as individuals we want to hear from families, schools and community groups. Contact us by email or go to  - What do you think?
