The National Football Museum

Set in the heart of Manchester city centre, the National Football Museum is the world’s biggest football museum. Whether you’re a fan of football or just visiting with your family, the National Football Museum is a brilliant day out and free to residents living in the city of Manchester.

With lots of important football memorabilia on display as well as loads of stuff for mini footy fanatics to get involved in, you can explore the museum over 7 floors of the Urbis Building.

Relive your club’s greatest moments through archived BBC radio recordings, find out more about the story of women’s football, lift some (virtual) silverware and limber up for a penalty shoot-out. There’s plenty to fascinate football fans of all ages.
