Fantasic For Families

Experience the world’s greatest sport at the National Football Museum. Whether you’re a football fanatic, planning a visit with your family or on a weekend break to the great city of Manchester, we’re the place to come and share stories about everyone’s favourite game!

The National Football Museum charges an admission fee for all visitors, with the exception of City of Manchester residents and City of Manchester schools. Admission prices for 2020 can be found on our website.

Admission includes entrance to all floors of the museum including our temporary exhibitions, photos with the museum’s Premier League trophy and unlimited use of our activities (with the exception of Penalty Shootout, which will cost £2 per three penalty kicks).*

Your contribution will go back into the National Football Museum charity, helping to fund our learning and community programmes, stage new exhibitions and tell more of the stories around the beautiful game.

*There are currently restrictions around use of the activities due to Coronavirus. Guided tours are also not currently running but video tours and resources are available to access from your mobile to compliment your visit.
