Manchester, so much to answer for...

Our new exhibition examines the way Manchester's history has been recorded over the centuries and the ways in which its civic pride and regional identity have developed, from the earliest maps and tourist guides to popular novels and songs. It encompasses a wide range of human histories, from chronicles of events to academic research on the nature of urban society, from polemics on harsh Victorian living conditions to songs celebrating the joys of living in 1980s Madchester.

Come and see the exhibition during normal opening hours (Monday to Friday, 9am-12.30 and 1.30pm-4.30).
