Can you believe that this year's FA Cup finale will be the first time that Manchester's two top teams have met one another in a major cup final? (No, we're not counting the 1956 or 2011 Community Shield games.)

In the run-up to the big day at Wembley, the National Football Museum is helping fans get in the mood with a little medal-making in the Pitch Gallery.

Get inspired by some of the traditional old-school medals in our FA Cup display - including the very first (and very tiny!) medal awarded in 1872 - or come up with your own unique engravings to draw onto our golden card medallions. Each medal comes with a choice or ribbon - naturally, red or blue - as well as a customisable presentation case!

This activity will be taking place from 11am to 3pm on weekdays and 11:30am to 2:30pm on weekends across the half term holiday, and is included in the price of admission.
