All about Widnes, Home

Catalyst Museum, Widnes

Incorporating part of the old Gossage's factory on Spike Island and complemented by modern purpose built galleries the Catalyst Museum located in Mersey Road, Widnes, is the only science centre and museum solely devoted to chemistry and how the products of chemistry are used in every day life. Their key aim is to inform people of all ages about chemistry, industry and its role in our lives, past present and future.

Finding out is fun at Catalyst. With four interactive galleries and over 100 different exhibits to explore. Enjoy the best panoramic views in Widnes across Cheshire from the roof-top Observatory reached by a scenic glass lift.

Catalyst's Scientrific gallery has over 30 hands-on interactive exhibits allowing you to explore how chemicals are made and discover their uses. A touch screen computer system provides full information about each exhibit. Discover colourful crystals, magical mixes, light from gases, how solar power works, what we can do to improve our environment and much more. Let the children play, test and touch to find out more.

The Birth of Industry exhibition on the first floor explores the development of the Chemical Industry from ancient times up to the 1940's with reconstructed scenes, archive films and computer quizzes which bring the past vividly to life. The story begins with the products developed by ancient civilizations and ends with the birth of the multi-million pound empires of the major companies in the 1930's and 1940's.

Catalyst is a charitable trust whose ultimate responsibility for its operation lies with a Board of Trustees. The development of the Museum has been funded through an effective partnership of chemical industry companies, central and local government, the European Union and a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

On Monday 5th November Catalyst will have the best view in Widnes of the fireworks celebrations. Relax with a hotpot supper and the chance to see the fireworks from the comfort of the Observation Gallery for only £8.00 for adults and £7.00 for children. All About Widnes will be there so check back after the event for photos. To find out more about Catalyst visit their website or telephone 0151 420 1121.

What you published made a lot of sense. But, what about this?
what if you were to create a killer title? I am not saying your content isn't good., but suppose you added a post title to maybe grab people's attention?
I mean "Catalyst Museum, Widnes" is kinda vanilla. You should look at Yahoo's front page and note how they create news titles to get people to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get people excited about everything've got to say.

Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
