We're family friendly

We're a great place for you and your family; have some fun; kick a ball; share some memories and of course discover more about your favourite game. 

We've designed our museum to appeal to families with kids of all ages, so wherever you are there'll be something for you to get involved with.  

Throughout the museum there are interactive objects, games and displays that will appeal to a wide range of ages. Our Discovery Zone is designed especially for ages 5 and under. We run regular Baby Moves, Lets Play Toddler and StoryTime Sessions, which can be booked via the Enquiry Form or by calling 0161 8718 145.

Some of our FootballPlus+ simulations require users to kick, stretch, run and react quickly, and we suggest are most suitable for ages 7 and over.


To help you plan your visit, look out for:

Discovery Zone (Level 2)

Especially for the Under 5’s. Dressing up, a story corner and a soft play area for your little ones to enjoy.

Storage (Ground Floor)

We have lockers and a cloakroom for you to store buggies and any other luggage you may have.  

Baby Changing and Toilets

There are toilets on the ground floor level, level 1, 2 and 4. Baby changing is on the ground floor.


The Cafe at the National Football Museum is a great place to relax during or after your visit. We have lunch boxes and serve small portions for smaller appetites. We have high chairs and are very happy to warm bottles for you.


We're completely accessible with lifts to all floors and an automatic entrance door. For more information about physical access, please see our Access page.


Our shop is stacked full of gifts and souvenirs – with something for all the team and plenty of pocket money gifts for the kids!
