The museum is home to the world's greatest football collection, with over 140,000 items including official exhibits from FIFA.

The collection explores football past and present, looking at the game from every angle to provide a comprehensive account of how it has become part of England’s national heritage.

Located in central Manchester, the museum is spread over five floors and offers a programme of interactive events and temporary exhibitions.

Please note the penalty shootout and other activities will incur an additional £2 cost.

In episode three of our new podcast Meet Me at the Museum, Tez Ilyas takes his dad Mo to the National Football Museum for a kickabout and to learn some surprising facts about the collection.
