Manchester Museum of Science & Industry
Manchester Museum of Science & Industry
Opened in 1969, the North Western Museum of Science and Industry quickly outgrew its temporary premises on Grosvenor Street, Chorlton-on-Medlock. Today the Museum occupies the former Liverpool Road Station, one of Manchester's most important historic sites. When the Station closed in 1975, Greater Manchester Council, agreed to purchase it to become the Museum's new home. The Museum opened at its new site on 15 September 1983, the 153rd anniversary of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway.
