The People's History Museum, Manchester

The People's History Museum in Manchester is the national centre for preservation and interpretation of material relating to working people in Britain. During InfoBritain's visit we saw displays on the history of voting rights, the Peterloo Massacre, and the history of football. The Museum is situated in Manchester city centre and re-opened in February 2010 after a massive redevelopment project costing £12.5 million.

Displays are viewed in a roughly chronological order starting with the Peterloo Massacre of 1819 and continuing to the present day.
