People’s History Museum exceeds annual target of 100,000 visitors!

1 & 2 March, Play Your Party @ People's History MuseumWe are all really excited at the museum to announce that we achieved over 100,000 visitors in 2013/14. Four years since the museum re-opened after its capital redevelopment in 2010, the museum has seen visitors grow and grow each year from around 25,000 before our new building was opened to 108,600 in the last year!

The museum continues to attract a mix of visitors with 50% of people visiting coming from Greater Manchester, 30% from across the UK and 15% international tourists. We work hard to promote the museum far and wide and to provide services and activities for local residents and for visitors to the city region.

And all these extra visitors are also donating to the museum and spending money in our shop and cafe – with March 2014 seeing the highest ever amount received in our donations boxes and the highest ever amount spent in our shop.

Thank you to everyone who has visited and supported the museum this year!

We look forward to welcoming and working with even more of you in 2014/15 – please do come along and see what we have to offer at the People’s History Museum.

As the National Museum of Democracy – we are the Home of Ideas Worth Fighting For and a place to explore the extraordinary achievements of ordinary people who have changed the world we live in today…
