The National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port is holding a special open day this Sunday (18 November) when entry to the museum will be free all day.

The open day will be celebrate a successful 2012 season and give visitors a chance to see all areas of the National Waterways Museum. There will be the chance to speak to the volunteer group to learn about opportunities, find out about some of the 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 locals 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. Our great value annual pass gives unlimited visits all year for just £6.50 for adults and they’ll be a chance to get a pass for 2013 at our open day."

The museum’s cafe and shop will also be open, with traditional food and a range of gifts on sale.
