Cliffe Castle Museum at Keighley was hailed as “unbelievable” by a Government minister when she toured the recently reopened treasure house.
Culture Secretary Maria Miller was shown around the Victorian mill owner's mansion yesterday by museum manager Daru Rooke.
Mrs Miller, who also visited Oakbank School, learned about the museum's history and its recent £350,000 refurbishment. She said: “It’s wonderful to see the work that has gone on.
“It's incredibly important to make sure we preserve our local history.”
Mrs Miller visited Cliffe Castle at the invitation of Keighley MP Kris Hopkins. She is pictured with Mr Hopkins and Oakbank School students Georgina Lorriman, Danyal Ismail, Matthew Thomas and Callum Stevens.
