People's History Museum Tours

People's History Museum
Take a step back through the more recent history of Manchester’s organized labor movement and social history from the 18th century and on. Here, visitors can learn about the people who made the city what it is today and the people’s fight for democracy.

Collections here are very extensive and include objects designated as being of national importance by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport. Included in the museum is a cache of political cartoons from the 18th and 19th centuries that are considered one of the finest collections outside of the British Museum. There are also poster collections dating back to the Spanish Civil War, along with an exhibit of pins, medals and tokens from organizations, political movements and more.

But the museum extends beyond the political and also includes art and other historic items. Explore work by Cliff Rowe, ceramics, photographs, plus odds and ends like Thomas Paine’s death mask and more.
