Although the Rochdale Pioneers Museum and Co-operative Archive are temporarily closed due to government coronavirus advice, you can still access our co-operative heritage collections and resources online.

Some of these resources have been put online for the first time in our history for you to enjoy and access from your own home. There are a range of resources suitable for all ages and we will be continuously updating this page throughout our closure.

We are also still on hand to answer any questions you might have about the Co-operative Heritage Trust via email and social media:
