Located on the historic site of the world's oldest surviving passenger railway station, the museum's fascinating galleries and outstanding collections tell the story of Manchester's scientific and industrial past, present and future.

The Science and Industry Museum’s collections are housed in five listed buildings. Don't miss the Textiles Gallery which explores Manchester’s relationship with cotton, through fascinating displays, activities and free explainer-led demonstrations.

Other highlights include the hands-on Experiment Gallery, a replica of 'Baby', the world's first stored-program computer, plus a programme of temporary exhibitions and special events.
