Housed within the restored nineteenth century Ashton Canal Warehouse the museum combines a lively modern interior with a peaceful canal side setting. Portland Basin Museum is an exciting family friendly museum, with something for all the family!

Step back in time on our 1920s street, as the sights and sounds of bygone Tameside are brought to life. Take a look into our kitchen and parlour to find out how we used to live. Discover what life was like down the mines, or on the farm. Explore local crafts and industries and marvel at our historic machines. You can even drive a model canal boat, or play schoolyard games of yesteryear. Younger children will love our 'Nuts and Bolts' educational play area. .
