The Hat Works Nov 07, 2010
The Hat Works is a cool little museum in Stockport. It is a museum, unsurprisingly enough, of hats.

Entrance is free. Getting to Stockport is very easy; there are frequent, cheap trains from Manchester Piccadilly to Stockport, and the Hat Works is a short walk downhill.

The downstairs of the museum has a display on the manufacture of hats, which was a major industry in Stockport historically. The upstairs has displays of felt and hats through the ages, including a felt yurt and a hat that may, or may not, be Wellington's hat.

It's clearly pitched to be fun for children, with lots of fun interactive things, and easy language displays. Of course, there is no rule that says that 30 year olds shouldn't also play with the hats!

This is a really interesting museum for anyone who likes hats, or likes the Mad Hatter, or wants to take their kids somewhere free and entertain them for a while. I really liked it.
