Large scale roadworks started 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.

Lark Hill Place Changeover

As we reach the end of our Lark Hill Place 1918 project, we will be busy taking the street back to its original setting of 1897. So we can change over all the shop windows and complete a full conservation clean of the street it will be closed to the public during January 2019, reopening to the public on Tuesday 5 February 2019. Thank you for your patience whilst we complete this task.

Keep an eye on our social media feeds for updates as to progress, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the street in February. The rest of the galleries and the café will be open as usual during this time.
