Rochdale Pioneers Museum

We exist to preserve the heritage assets of the co-operative movement in the UK. We look after collections from records to objects which tell the story of how the movement began, the way it grew and its influence on the social, economic and political history of the country.

Please see our website for full details of all up and coming events.

What we do

Due to our small size, we can only show a limited amount of our collections at any one time, so we rotate displays through temporary themed exhibitions. We host public events and workshops for a range of audiences, ages and interests.

The Rochdale Pioneers were committed to education and helping people to help themselves. We continue this through our schools and adult education programmes as well as by working with local communities to grow confidence and skills through co-operative practice.

We try to put the ideas we stand for into action to help people understand why the heritage of the movement is still relevant to people's lives today.
