A FREE tour of the National Waterways Museum is on offer this weekend.
Entry to the museum in Ellesmere Port will be free during the open day this Sunday.
It will give visitors a chance to see all areas of the museum, speak to the volunteer group to learn about opportunities, find out about events planned in 2013 and buy an annual pass for next year.
Museum marketing manager Oliver Briscoe said: “Our open day is a great chance for Ellesmere Port people to come and visit us free of charge and see what’s changed since their last visit – we talk to lots of local people who tell us they haven’t visited for years.
“So this day will give them the chance to see what we’re all about and find out about some of our upcoming events.”
The museum’s cafe and shop will also be open, with traditional food and a range of gifts on sale.
The museum is home to the national collection of historic working boats, some of which visitors can board to explore and find out how the working boat people used to live.
It also has a trip boat, hands-on exhibits, films, touch-screen displays, stables, a blacksmith, docks, pump houses, workers cottages and gardens, an archive, a soft play area, a shop and cafe.
