Power Hall

The Power Hall at the Science and Industry Museum—one of the most beloved industrial heritage galleries in the country—is to be restored to full working condition.

The transformation is part of an ambitious, multi-million-pound long-term plan to reveal how the ideas explored at this historic site have changed the world.

The urgently needed work on the roof will be completed thanks to a £6 million contribution from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. Further funding for the redisplayed gallery content and returning the machines to steam has been provided by the Science Museum Group.

The restored Power Hall will show how Manchester rose to be a player on the world stage, through the stories of the people who built and maintained the amazing machines on display.
