Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Rossendale Museum

The Whitaker (previously Rossendale Museum & Art Gallery) is set in a beautiful park at the centre of the Rossendale Valley, Lancashire, UK. The museum displays include interesting local history, painting, and Victorian natural history collections. There is also a very active contemporary art gallery with changing exhibitions. Our main galleries have been newly refurbished by The Whitaker Group, who have exciting plans for the future of the gallery, the collection, and the park.
