Hi R4412BQkeithc, Thanks for the review! I'm glad you found the museum informative. We try our best to make our galleries exciting and engaging as well as informative! Hopefully we'll see you again soon. We are due to re-open on the 3rd of December 2020 as per government guidelines but do keep an eye on the website to see if there are any changes. Thanks again, Callum - Visitor Services

The museum is exceptional in that it informs and educates on the subject of people's struggle for a fairer world - wonderful exhibits and interactive displays - but not for touching at the moment!

Hello there markfarrow77, Thanks so much for the five star review and that you think our museum is exceptional! I like to think so too! It's so good to hear that you enjoyed the exhibits and displays. Hopefully you checked out our new Match Stick Girl's interactive on Main Gallery One. Our visitors have enjoyed trying to make as many matchstick boxes as quickly as possible! Hopefully you can come back and visit us soon. Do please check our website prior to your visit though, as this will enable you to see what events and exhibitions we have on. Thanks again, Callum - Visitor Services

Really interesting museum with lots of information about people from Manchester and other places who have fought for everyone to get the vote, for the right to be in a trade union and for everyone to be treated equally. The museum documents how people's lives have generally improved thanks to many people in the past fighting for a better future.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon - pre-booked via Eventbrite. We decided visiting a museum should be safer than going into town given increasing levels of Covid. Found the museum engaging and interesting even though much of the interaction was off limits. Plenty of sanitiser around and staff advised us to start on floor 2 as floor 1 was busier when we arrived. Felt that every effort had been made to keep visitors and staff safe as possible. Look forward to returning and seeing it as it should be!

Hello Kaz1965_11! It’s so good to see a five star review, thank you so much! I’m really pleased you’re happy with the measures we’ve put in place to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic. We really have tried to cover all bases by implementing advanced bookings, one way systems, hand sanitiser stations, and rigorous cleaning measures of all public spaces throughout the day so I’m glad you’ve noticed that! We look forward to seeing you again soon. Ahead of your visit you can check out our website as it’s the best place to see what events and exhibitions we have on at the museum. Thanks again, Callum – Visitor Services
