The National Football Museum has been recognised as custodian to the world's largest collection of football objects and archives. Based in the Urbis building in Manchester city centre, the National Football Museum attracts tourists worldwide with its exhibitions and the 2,500 items on display.

Having moved from Preston in Lancashire to its new home in the heart of Manchester in 2012, the museum showcases the amazing stories from the nation's favourite sport. The National Football Museum is a huge attraction in our city and arguably one of the best places for tourists to visit.

Whether you want to have more knowledge about the sport, a chance to see some of the most incredible and historic trophies up close, or you want to get involved in some interactive challenges and games, there is something for everyone - football fan or not.

The museum is free for Manchester City Council residents, and if you live outside of this area, you can buy a ticket and visit as many times as you like within 12 months.
