Your February fixture list
13 February 2019
We're warming up for our first half term holiday of 2019!
Join us all next week and see our brand spanking new galleries and exhibitions, including Kosmo Vinyl’s punk art exhibition and our incredible England on the World Stage display.
Young fans can travel back through time all next week on one of our Going to the Match tours (Mon 18 – Fri 22 Feb, 11:30am & 2:30pm), and take in all of the sights, sounds and smells of a traditional matchday. Learn more about what it meant to be a football supporter in previous generations, and dress up in the scarves, hats and rosettes of yesteryear.
Bring boots and balls to life in one of our Animating Histories sessions (Mon 18, Wed 20 & Fri 22 Feb, 11am – 12:30pm), creating your own unique videos using our authentic museum objects and stop-motion technology.
Children under 7 can help unravel the mystery of the missing Jules Rimet trophy in our How Pickles Saved the World Cup storytime sessions (Tues 19 & Thurs 21 Feb, 11am – 12pm). Join us in the Play Gallery as we investigate the theft prior to the 1966 World Cup, search for important clues, and help Pickles the Dog sniff out the missing trophy!
On Friday 22 February (11 - 11:30am), visitors can learn more about the incredible history of the League Cup – and hear first-hand the story of a man who lifted the trophy. Our team will be joined by Manchester City winger Dennis Tueart, scorer of the winning goal in the 1976 final, for a discussion about the competition’s biggest moments, including Dennis’ personal memories of that Wembley triumph.
All of these activities, plus unlimited trophy photos and football challenges* for a whole twelve months, are included in the price of your ticket (admission is free for city of Manchester residents).
