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.

Museum and Café Opening Times  are 10am – 4pm, Tuesday to Sunday.

The Bar is open from 5pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday , last orders at 11 pm.

From Friday 17th April 2015 we will be open for evening meals on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. food will be available from 5.30 pm and last orders for food will be at 9.30 pm.

Given the growing interest, and finite space, its probably going to be advisable to check for availability beforehand, and Saturdays will be by reservation only.
