Science and Industry Museum

About Us

From its home on the site of the world’s oldest surviving passenger railway station, the Science and Industry Museum tells the story of Manchester’s scientific and industrial past, present and future. Manchester—the world’s first industrial city—has long been a hotbed of invention and experimentation.

The museum conveys the colossal impact the city’s science, technology and innovation had and continue to have in changing the world.
