National Football Museum, for fans of the sport

More than just a sport, football is a religion in Manchester. The city lives to the rhythm of its games and has dedicated a museum to this unique passion.

With Manchester City and Manchester United in the fold, two famous clubs each counting some of the most impressive prize lists in the United Kingdom, Mancunians are self-defined football fanatics. In that logic, the city has built a museum devoted to the popular favourite in the hypermodern Urbis Building. Trophies, jerseys, studs and balls… all those mythical items are exhibited over three floors and tell the story of British football. The Hall of Fame is the ultimate room in telling the story of the greatest players from the two teams. Put your knowledge of sport to the test, estimate your shooting power during penalty shoot-outs and show your might as a goalie. Period football tables are scattered here and there, for the pleasure of young lads, always eager to play some. Once in the museum, out-and-out fans usually do not look at the clock. It is therefore advised to show up in the morning to fully enjoy all the interactive devices at your disposal.
