Building works – nearing completion!

We are nearing the end of the building works in the Victorian Gallery, and whilst we dismantle the temporary structures and re-hang the gallery it will be necessary to periodically close the gallery during September and October. Please call us on 0161 778 0800 prior to travelling to check if the gallery is open to avoid disappointment. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.

Once works are completed the gallery will be fully open to visitors again, and ask that you bear with us during the works as we may have to close this gallery at short notice.

Our recreated street (Lark Hill Place) and all other galleries are open as usual including our fantastic new exhibition showcasing the work of the Royal Academy.


Large scale roadworks will start on Regent Road on the Wednesday 29 August 2018 and run for the next 12 months – we expect roads around the museum and Ordsall Hall to be busier than usual, especially at peak times. Please leave plenty of time for your journey or use public transport to reach us. For more information visit the Manchester City Council website.
