Science and Industry Museum blog

With three and a half weeks to go until Manchester Science Festival, we catch up with the winner of this year’s Josh Award, science communicator Mat Allen to find out what he’s been developing for visually impaired visitors.

We asked historian Shirin Hirsch from our neighbours, People’s History Museum, to explain the politics of the time around 1830 and why the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway turned out to be such a rebellious and highly charged day.

At our museum we tell some really big stories about science and industry, from the early days of the cotton and rail industries, when the speed of change was terrifying, to the science of the future, from robots to graphene and beyond.
