Free admission – Donations welcome!
Admission is FREE, but the museum is a registered charity and we welcome donations to help support our work with local community groups, our volunteering programme and of course to help us look after all the objects in the museum. Or our visitor package is just £6 and includes a visitor guide, 2 Football Plus+ credits, the chance to take your photo with some of our most famous trophies and, during the week, a 40 minute guided tour. It’s a great way to make sure you get the most out of your visit.
Make your visit even more memorable by buying extra credits for our Football Plus+ experiences!
If you’re planning a visit and are aged under fourteen you must bring an adult with you. If your children are under twelve then you must accompany them at all times during your visit – this keeps everyone happy!
We rarely refuse admission to anyone but if we do it’s for the health, safety, happiness and enjoyment of our visitors and our staff.
Guided tours are available daily, Monday to Friday, at 10:30am, 12:30pm & 2:30pm as part of our donation package. During school holidays and across weekends, tours take place at the same times, but are not included with the donation package.
We’re based in the city centre in one of the most visually striking buildings in Manchester. Called Urbis, our home is a unique building designed by Ian Simpson Architects. The glass building has six storeys and a distinctive sloping form. Our galleries are spread over several floors and full details of what can be found in our ‘What’s Inside’ section.
Please be aware we are currently unable to offer cloakroom or locker facilities. Please consider what bags are necessary for your visit.
