About Museum of Science and Industry

The award-winning Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) aims to “bring innovation to life.” It does this with hands-on exhibits that allow children (of all ages) to grapple with tools and toys. It has an air and space gallery, a power hall and a communications gallery, which demonstrates the evolution from talking to texting. The museum was established in 1969, and moved into its current premises at the old Liverpool Road Station in 1983.

Special Events

The Museum of Science and Industry is located in Castlefield, the site of a Roman castle that has been around for more than 2,000 years. Although the castle is now in ruins, the old steel bridges and warehouse are relatively intact and being put to good use in the building of this museum, which combines the development of modern science and industrial revolution. Within the museum are exhibits of complete sets of steam engines and weaving machine, and a eighteenth century train station and it is very fascinating. There are some activities that requires visitors’ participation, hoping that the hands-on approach can let visitors better understand the industrial processes of that era.
