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 scaffolding and areas that may be closed, including the Power Hall, the 1830 Station the Air and Space Hall, but there is still much to enjoy on your visit. The 1830 Warehouse will also be open for special events in 2022. It will host activities as part of our summer holiday programme and during Manchester Science Festival 2022.

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