Hire the Science and Industry Museum

Showcasing Manchester’s rich legacy of world-changing innovations and scientific discoveries, this distinctive and truly remarkable setting transforms formal galas, conferences and private soirées into once-in-a-lifetime events.

A multi-million-pound restoration programme is underway at our globally significant industrial heritage site, to carry out crucial restoration work across the site. During this exciting time of change, we will be closing our conference centre from January 2024 until mid 2025, as we future-proof New Warehouse for generations to come.

Our 1830 Warehouse will still be available to hire during the day, up until April 2024, but we recommend getting in touch with a member of our team to understand how these works may impact your event.

The Revolution Manchester Gallery, Textiles Gallery, Power Up and the 1830 Warehouse are available for evening events, please contact the venue hire inbox for more information.
