The buildings of Liverpool Road station are one of the most incredible things about the site on which the Museum of Science and Industry sits—but a huge fire over 150 years ago almost destroyed these historic structures.

Fans of the trading cards that we debuted last June will be excited to hear that we are bringing them back for February half term to try and put faces to some of the people who powered the Industrial Revolution in Manchester.

Long before this museum stood on the site of Liverpool Road Station there was an “unofficial” museum here displaying some railway treasures.
