Venue type: Indoor

Bless your little one’s cotton socks and bring your family to The People’s History Museum. Come and learn about the importance of Manchester’s cotton trade during the Industrial Revolution.

Discover 19th-century secret societies that graced the alleyways and hidden nooks and crannies of Manchester. At this museum your family can uncover over 1500 objects that are on exhibition and hear about the stories behind each and every one.

There are also interactive stations to help aid in the learning process. One of the most popular is the ‘Letters in a Box’ station. At this station you can engage with hundred-year-old objects that represent an individual's life, which is great for kinesthetic learners, as you can learn about a period of time through play and interaction. Bring your family to this museum and learn about Manchester’s fascinating but peculiar past.
