MOSI celebrates 30 years at Liverpool roadSeptember 12, 2013
The Museum of science and industry is a fantastic venue for weddings, conferences and other corporate events as well as being a great day out for children and adults alike.
I can not believe that MOSI has been on the same site for as long as I have been alive. It still looks fantastic and I hope to stays on the same site for a very long time. If you are ever in Manchester and you are yet to visit the museum I would definitely recommend it.
MOSI is housed in the buildings of the former Liverpool Road station, the world’s oldest passenger railway station and part of the Liverpool & Manchester Railway, which opened in 1830. When the station closed in 1975 Greater Manchester Council started negotiations to purchase the historic site for the museum. In 1985 the museum also took over the former Lower Campfield Market – now the Air and Space Hall. The museum now includes five historic listed buildings and two listed railway viaducts. The 1980s and 1990s saw the gradual restoration and opening up of these buildings and their conversion for galleries.
If you are a blogger and you want to come along to MOSI on Sunday May 4th to join us at Blog On 2014 you can find tickets at the link below. Blog On 2013 was a huge success and we hope to be even better next year. If you have any ideas of sessions or speakers please do let me now.
