Museums, galleries and theatres in Manchester will be able to welcome visitors back again soon. In line with government guidelines, many of our favourite places will be open again from 19 May 2021.
Libraries in Manchester have already opened too. And although it may be some time before regular events and community groups start up again in Manchester’s libraries, you can now browse and borrow books.
Here is the most up-to-date information we have about reopening times. You may have to book your visit in advance too so make sure you check the venue websites for the very latest information.
The Royal Exchange has reopened to the public for performances only. Tickets for theatre shows must be booked online in advance. For performances, the building will open one hour before the scheduled start time.
