Manchester’s Science and Industry Museum is all set to re-open its doors on Friday 14 August and people are being asked to book two weeks in advance – with free tickets available now. This new ticketing system has been put in place to allow for timed visits and ensure a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience. The museum has also unveiled details of what awaits new visitors, including the new Science Stops which invite professional Explainers (as featured on BBC Bitesize Daily) to share scientific secrets through short experiments and discussions. Expect to learn more about cotton’s journey from fluff to tough fibre and what happens to our bodies in space. You’ll also be able to explore The Textiles Pitt which contains original machinery from Manchester’s 19th century mills.

Unfortunately due to ongoing building work, some areas of the Museum remain closed for now. However, visitors can still explore the city’s rich legacy of innovation in the Revolution Manchester Gallery. Their Experiment celebration aims to bring science to life in front of your eyes, and you can safely gaze at The Sun – an exhibition all about space’s greatest wonder. Of course, there will be new safety procedures in place – but visitors will receive an advance email outlining the changes to their experience.
