The displays and exhibitions at the People's History Museum reconstruct the lives of ordinary people over the past 200 years. The journey takes you, with the help of vivid reconstructions, from Victorian cotton workers to modern-day athletes. There are also interactive exhibits which enable you to experience different movements and events which occurred over a period of time. On display are unique collections of union banners, posters, badges and other related memorabilia. There is also a cafe and gift shop, and special guided tours are available for groups on request.
