Building our new gallery

We will soon start work on a major new exhibition gallery in the museum, which will enable us to create and bring world class science exhibitions to Manchester.

The £5 million gallery will be designed by award-winning architects Carmody Groarke

Behind-the-scenes work will begin in summer 2018 and the new space is expected to open in 2020.

The project is generously funded by the Department for Media, Culture and Sport, Wellcome, Kirby Laing Foundation, The Zochonis Charitable Trust, and Friends of the Science and Industry Museum.
