Befitting the national museum of democracy, objects related to the fight for the vote make up a core of the collection. The objects are hugely varied. The PHM collection of trade union and political banners is the largest and most important of its type in the world. The museum also houses an…
National centre for the collection, conservation, interpretation and study of material relating to the history of working people in the UK.
Thanks to a £12.5 million redevelopment of an existing, smaller museum, the People's History Museum re-opened in 2010 as a centre worthy of the important legacy that it houses: the 200-year-old story of British democracy. It grew out of the Trade Union, Labour and Co-operative History Society, which…
Lots of LGBTQ and women's rights history amongst loads of other interesting exhibitions!
The origins of the museum lie in the 1960s when a group of pioneer activists began to collect labour history material at a time when the museum world was largely uninterested. They believed strongly in the importance of collecting and preserving items belonging to working people.

“Salford is a city full of surprises, and not the least significant of these is the magnificent Ordsall Hall, a Grade I listed Tudor manor house slap bang in the middle of a housing estate. The first ever recording of the hall was back in 1177 so you can see why this lovingly restored building earned its Grade I status.”

“The Salford Museum & Art Gallery collection is mainly that of a social history collection reflecting the lives of people in Salford. In addition we hold a Victorian Art collection, a small but representative collection of British modern art, and a large collection of Pilkington Ceramics which includes the factory archive. The Local History Library within the museum holds a wealth of material including maps, plans, trade directories and photographs all pertaining to Salford’s history.”

“This nature reserve can be accessed from the bottom of Beech Road, just opposite the Bowling Green pub. Lovely riverside walk which branches out for miles in either direction along the River Mersey. Be sure to visit Jackson's Boat pub (bicycle hire also available from near here) for refreshments, or Sale Water Park (5 - 10 minutes further walk).”

“There are many reasons why The Quays should be at the top of your 'must see' list when you're in Manchester and Salford. This stunning waterfront destination has grown out of the once derelict docklands of the Salford and Trafford Quays area, transformed from desolate wasteland into a place where some of the country's most iconic buildings (both The Lowry and Imperial War Museum North are RIBA award winners) stand with their neighbours to provide a place where culture, sport, shopping and a lot more come together. And they're all within walking distance of each other.”
