Explore the world's largest football collection, learn about the history and culture of England's national sport and take part in other footy-related indoor activities at Manchester's National Football Museum.
Trace the history of your favourite team, see the trophies lifted by heroes and beat the keeper between the Euro ‘96 Wembley goal posts. This journey will take you through the history of the world’s most popular sport, and you can test your knowledge and skills along the way with interactive games and exhibits.
Set in the striking Urbis Building, this free museum is great fun for young and old alike. You can get up close to the original World Cup Jules Rimet Trophy and the shirt worn by Maradona when the hand of god helped Argentina knock England out of the 1986 World Cup.
From pigskin footballs to Picasso sculptures, a trip to the National Football Museum will leave you in no doubt that England loves its football and it will certainly help you understand why Manchester, and the rest of the world, are mad for it.
