FREE entry is being promised to a Burnley landmark as part of the upcoming heritage weekend series.
Admission fees to Queen Street Textile Museum will be waived from Friday September 13, to Sunday, September 15, it has been announced.
Two museum areas, normally out-of-bounds for visitors, will be especially opened up at the Harle Syke attraction for the duration.
Vanessa Bedford, museum manager, said: “There will be something for everyone to see and do, even if you are one of our regular visitors.
“For example, people will have the chance to see inside our Victorian offices and historic stables, which are usually closed to the public.
“They can find out more about the life of the mill manager and the important role that mill horses played in the story of cotton weaving.”
The annual historic car cavalcade will also take place on the Sunday, from 11am.
The rail-themed display, ‘Rose Grove to Darjeeling’ is another feature.
