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.

The Science and Industry Museum has also embarked on a multi-phased programme of conservation repairs to the Grade I listed 1830 Warehouse, the world’s first railway warehouse.

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.
