The Science and Industry Museum is set to make its Victorian railway warehouse space available for events. The Manchester museum is built on the site of the oldest surviving passenger railway stations and the world’s first inter-city railway warehouse. Significant investment has transformed the Grade I listed building which retains original period features for use by external events. From April, the top floor of the railway warehouse dating back to 1830 will now be able to host conferences, dinners, drinks receptions and product launches for up to 200 guests.
Chris Hanley, Group Event Manager at the Science and Industry Museum, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer the 1830 Warehouse as an innovative and cultural option for events. The railway station was life-changing for Manchester and we are proud to be able to open the top-floor of this incredible space to host standout events and occasions over the next three years.”
