Groups of all interests and sizes are welcome at the museum. Journey through Manchester's scientific and industrial heritage with our interactive galleries, shows and workshops. Discover some of the most surprising scientific discoveries to come out of Manchester in our Science City workshop.

Please note, construction work is taking place across the museum and some of our buildings are closed right now. This means we might look a little different when you visit us, but there's still plenty to see, do and discover.
