We are changing

A multi-million-pound restoration programme is underway at our globally significant industrial heritage site to carry out crucial restoration work and reveal new spaces and perspectives for all visitors to enjoy, play and learn in.

We are bringing to life the story of the site, inspiring the innovators of the future to power the next (green) industrial revolution and creating a more sustainable museum.

This means that there is a lot of building work in progress and areas that are temporarily closed, including the Power Hall and the 1830 Station and Warehouse, but there is still much to enjoy on your visit

For further information on current planning applications and a more detailed Q&A for our neighbours please visit our dedicated community page.
