Revolution Manchester Gallery

The Revolution Manchester Gallery will be closed all day on Friday 28 March 2014 - our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

MOSI's newest gallery opened to the public on 29 January 2011. This gallery serves as an introduction to MOSI's subject themes, galleries and collections - and also highlights other heritage venues in the NW. It provides an overview of Manchester's rich legacy of world-changing industrial innovations and scientific discoveries.

Digital sculptureA huge, eye-catching digital sculpture forms the Gallery's attractor exhibit.  By registering a bar-code card, visitors can watch their photos travel back in time up the sculpture, past faces and places linked to significant Manchester achievements.  The bar-code card also activates a series of games and challenges, creating a log that can be viewed on a personal web page.

EngineeringThe Gallery is divided into six sections: Transport Revolutions, Computer Age, Engineering, Energy, Cottonopolis and Structure of Matter.  Each section tells a story running from the past to the future.  Links between Revolution Manchester and our other galleries are shown on a vast 50-screen media wall.
