Exploration Centre – New


Take ‘A view from above’, experience our museum like never before! Our modern, new visitor space connects old and new. It is a great space to gather to learn, relax and connect with others.

We think this is a special place. We hope you agree. It was made possible by the determination, talent and inspiration of our team of volunteers, staff and helpers. It has been part funded by the heritage lottery. Now we want to share it with you!

The room, has air-conditioning, full multi-media equipment, mood lighting and a sound system.

Definitely adding some Ribble Steam Railway industrial ‘Grand Design’ WOW factor, to inspire children of all ages. Perfect for meetings, groups, activities and events.
