Temporary closures

History Centre refurbishment 

The History Centre, located in Bolton Central Library, is due to be refurbished. To carry out this work, the History Centre is closing from Monday 15 January to the beginning of March. We look forward to welcoming you when we reopen.  


Bolton Museum

The museum, which is situated on the top floor of the building, is now closed to the public for the duration of the Eternal Egypt gallery project.

Unfortunately, while this work is on-going, we cannot provide Museum enquiry and object loan services or accept new donations. This temporary situation will be reviewed in December 2017.
