‪Another public space that puts the comfort of the male body before that of the female. I visited their gender neutral, cubical toilet and had to navigate a pool of urine in front of the toilet and a germ laden, raised seat. Sadly, lack of respect for female only spaces under the guise of being inclusive and woke is becoming tedious.‬

‪Really enjoyed our visit to the refurbished and extended museum and gallery it now has a new cafe a gift shop lots of space for exhibitions and a great museum collection and they have lots of work shops available.
They also have film Nights and they host various exhibitions we saw the British Textile Biennial 2021 exploring the global nature of textiles and that is on till November 28th it was so interesting well worth a visit and I Would certainly recommend a visit to the Whittaker we will be regular visitors .

‪In the original building a lot of space has been wasted by putting up sparcely displayed modern art. Where are the artefacts given to the Borough by the Whitaker family including many paintings and memorabilia showing how past Rossendalians lived? Why have you not used some of the funding money to reinstate the Victorian rooms. Why have the ammonites been covered up? A few years ago you had the family portraits of the Whitehead family restored at considerable cost. Only a few of these are now on display and these are not named. Why? There is a considerable dumbing down from the original Museum which is disappointing and insulting. On the positive side the cafe is fine and the new events room is a useful space. The bare walls in the new building should be used for the modern art and craft. Save the old building for reinstating Rossendale's Museum please. It was entrusted to you for safe keeping, not to turn it into an art gallery by stealth.‬

‪The Biennial is interesting and well presented. It makes you think of your own time in relation to the past.
An intelligent exhibition made with care and compassion.‬

‪Interesting range of local history displays in a recently refurbished building. Changing exhibitions add to the offer. Free admission, what’s not to like?‬

‪I've been to eat a couple of times since the reopening of the museum and cafe .. both the breakfast and lunch were delicious. We found plenty of choice and it was good value for money. Great chefs and friendly service!
I particularly enjoyed the light and spacious setting with great views of the beautiful views across the park and valley.
It's made accessible with the lift and bathroom, making it suitable venue for all.‬

‪I used to love visiting Whitaker Park Museum as a child and adult, today I visited to see the refurbishment. I was so disappointed, it’s supposed to be a Museum not an art exhibition!! The building was donated by Richard Whitaker to be a museum.
Walking round I was gutted, there are only three rooms exhibiting as a museum, the rest is for exhibitions/crafting!

Bring back the old museum rooms please.

On a plus side the new cafe was nice, but very pricey!!!!‬

‪This is a lovely, quirky museum. A collection of what looked like Victorian taxidermy and curios, although the place is small I could have spent ages looking at these. Lots of interesting local history as well, and an exhibition space which, when we went, had a collection of beautiful, haunting works by David Hancock.
The restaurant is in a smart, bright modern extension, the food was delicious, and children are catered for with a kids menu and fun activity packs.
It's in a beautiful location, the views were gorgeous (we were lucky with the weather!) and there is plenty of seating.‬

‪I was massively impressed by the upgrade and extension to the premises that has recently been completed. It was pleasing to see that an antique violin donated by one of my distant relatives is still on display.
The cafe was closed during my visit because they were catering for their first wedding (a new enterprise?).‬

‪Having been here (many times) previously, I went with an open mind, to view the £2.2m refurbishment, and taste the food, described on their website as "full of flavour and incredibly delicious!"
Arriving at 11:40am (between existing customers finishing breakfast which apparently ended at 11:30, and lunch which didn't start until 12), we were shown to a table but told no service until 12.
Observations: the restaurant is light & airy, plenty of space between tables. But there are 2 x entrances - causes a problem when people are queuing for tables at one end, and others are using the other entrance.
Having waited 10 minutes we asked for a menu so we could be ready to order. That took a further 5 minutes to appear, so we ordered drinks. Drinks appeared & we ordered food at 12.
By the time food appeared the teapot for 2 (no hot water), with miniscule milk, had been drained.
The Sandwiches described as "all served with Salad & Coleslaw" came with a lettuce leaf, a single slice of cucumber and a teaspoon of coleslaw. No Onion, No Tomato. There was more sourdough bread than Tuna filling. The baked feta with lentils at £11.50 portion size was more like a starter. The side portion of "salt & pepper" chips came with huge slices of peppers amongst the chips - I would have expected small chunks of peppers scattered over them (or maybe that's just me?).
At over £40 for a light lunch I doubt we will be dining here again.
It's a shame - it could be so much better - and cheaper!
Why be so pretentious? Offer Brown/White Bread - why just Sourdough & Ciabatta's??

Oh yes - what is The Whitaker? - It's a Museum - not a café

So a look around at the ground floor (museum) before we left did nothing to enamour me.
The old exhibits are crammed into the dark, poorly lit, rear rooms (behind the shop & toilets), whilst the sunny front rooms are used for exhibition, and what appeared to be a children's craft area?
Richard Whitaker donated this building to the people of Rawtenstall as a museum. - or then maybe somewhere along the way, everyone has forgotten that!‬
