West Kirby Museum

Mission Statement
To preserve and display the collection of artefacts covering 1000 years of history of St Bridget's church and to promote knowledge and understanding of the museum, the church and local history.

Reserve Collection

In addition to the items on display, the West Kirby Museum Commemorating Charles Dawson Brown has a collection held in storage awaiting further analysis and interpretation. Hopefully one day we will be able to make them available to view for the public but in the meantime, this online display allows a rare glimpse of these rarely-seen artefacts.
