Get your footie fix this half term

2 October 2020


There’ll be plenty of footie themed activities for families this half term at the National Football Museum.

The museum will open from Wednesday 28 October to Sunday 1 November for the October break (10am-5pm with last entry at 4pm).

Enjoy fantastic exhibitions, get your photograph with the museum’s Premier League trophy and learn about the beautiful game across four floors.

Family activities include:

Strip! Production Line

(October 28, 30 and November 1)

Families can see more than 200 shirts in the Strip! How Football Got Shirty exhibition and then design their own in our Production Line activity.

Be inspired by brash and beautiful shirts from different eras then create your own version under the guidance of the museum team. The very best designs will be entered into a competition and the ultimate creation will be turned into a real kit for the winner by manufacturers Owayo.

Goal Click: Pop-up Polaroids

(October 29, 31)

Make your own card polaroid camera inspired by the latest exhibition about women’s football.  These crafty cameras will feature images from the Goal Click photographic exhibition which focuses on the biggest stars in women’s football.

Families can also test their nerve from the penalty spot. The museum has invested in a new projector in its Penalty Shootout making the experience from 12 yards even more realistic. Soak up the pressure of Wembley and go for glory from the spot…

Two excellent family trails can be enjoyed. One looking at the two giants of Manchester football and a journey around the current Strip! football shirt exhibition.

Pick up a leaflet on gallery or download your trail in advance.

Visitors can also book their museum tickets online.
