People's History Museum

Left Bank, Spinningfields, MANCHESTER, M3 3ER

There have always been ideas worth fighting for. Join a march through time at the People's History Museum following Britain's struggle for democracy over two centuries. Meet the revolutionaries, reformers, workers, voters and citizens who fought our battle for the ballot. Gather amongst their magnificent banners and discover how time off was won (and spent). Enjoy the main galleries, Changing Exhibition Gallery and Community Gallery, along with interactives and activities for visitors of all ages. Browse the shop for unique books and gifts and round off your day with a bite to eat in the on-site cafe bar, The Left Bank.
