National Football Museum

Urbis Building, Cathedral Gardens, Todd St, Manchester M4 3BG

The connection between football and Manchester is known around the globe. It is fitting that the worlds largest museum dedicated to the game is in football’s most famous city.

As must for all football fans, this free museum in the Urbis building celebrates the history and passion of the beautiful game.

The National Football Museum tells the full story of football from around the world. Ideal for a family day out, there are interactive features such as the opportunity to pose with virtual silverware or test your skills with the Tiki-Taka and shot stopper test.  For dedicated fans we recommend following a visit to the National Football Museum with a stadium tour of Manchester United at Old Trafford or home of Manchester City at the Etihad depending on your loyalties.

To get to the museum from the hotel by road the journey is approximately 25 minutes, alternatively it is easy to hope on a direct Metrolink tram or train to Manchester City Centre from the station opposite the hotel. The closest Metrolink stop to the museum is Exchange Square.

Opening times – 10.00am-5.00pm

Admission – free of charge
