Touchstones Rochdale Museum

 ROCHDALES ARTS & HERITAGE SERVICE manages the award-winning museum at Touchstones Rochdale, which opened in 2002 as an integrated arts and heritage centre. The building was developed in three phases, the first of which opened as the town's public library in October 1884. Nearly 20 years later, in 1903, local dignitaries were finally successful in their long campaign to establish an art gallery and museum. In due course, a two- storey extension was built, followed in 1913 by another extension to provide more space for the art gallery and museum.

This is the building that is today occupied by the redeveloped gallery and museum service, Touchstones Rochdale. The museum service has collections which, in addition to Egyptology, also include social history, costume and textiles, archaeology, geology, natural history and decorative arts.
