Manchester Museum of Science and Industry
The Museum of Science and Industry is a museum dedicated to the city’s achievements in science, technology and industry. With extensive displays of transport, power (water, electricity, steam and gas engines), textiles and computing, the museum has something on display for everyone.
As an Anchor Point of the European Route of Industrial Heritage, the museum is situated on the site of the world’s first railway station – Manchester Liverpool Road Railway Station, which opened in 1830. To highlight this, the museum offers steam train rides to visitors and the frontage of the train station still stands today. The museum organises an annual week long science festival each October for families and adults, incorporating over 100 events.
