Reviews of The Museum Of Wigan Life in Wigan
The Museum Of Wigan Life venue information
Discover the people and places of Wigan Borough both past and present at the Museum of Wigan Life.
We have lively displays on everything from sport and world war to music and festivals in Wigan, Leigh and across the borough.
The Museum of Wigan Life is housed in Wigan’s first public library and first public building with electric lighting. Alfred Waterhouse designed the building, which opened in 1878 and also designed the Natural History Museum in London and Manchester town hall. In 1936 George Orwell researched his book 'The Road to Wigan Pier' in the Reference Library (now Family History and Local Studies) upstairs.
You can delve into your own family history and local area in our dedicated department upstairs at the museum. Our friendly staff are always on hand to help and advise.
