Revolution Manchester Gallery
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.
A 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.
The 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.
