Bolton is a medium sized regional museum that has its origins in the Chadwick Museum and Mere Hall Art Gallery. Both of these were merged when the new building was built in 1939 to house the collections at Le Mans Crescent in the heart of Bolton town centre.

Bolton Museum is a member of the Find Your Talent Bolton partnership.
