Please note due to Covid-19 we are not currently open to the public and cannot accept bookings to the museum. If you would be interested in a digital session please email: These are available for KS2 and nursing homes, with more to follow.

  • Contact our Education & Engagement Officer, Helen by ringing 0161 856 3287 or emailing  We will then check availability in our diary and pencil you in a slot.
  • A booking pack will then be sent out, once this has been returned the booking will be confirmed.
  • A preliminary visit to the museum must be included for all bookings.

Important notice:

Due to the age of the building we do have a lift to the first floor, but this cannot be used in the event of an emergency. Therefore all visitors to the first floor must be able to evacuate the premises via the stairs in an emergency situation. If you think this may affect you then please let us know, as we will need to provide you with a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan, or PEEP.
