In the same road as the conference hotel (Liverpool Road) you will find Manchester’s award-winning MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry) It is open daily from 1000 to 1700 and has free entrance. Housed in a range of 19th century warehouses and hangars, as well as being the site of the first passenger railway in the world (Manchester to Liverpool in the 1830s) there are planes, machines and even sewers on display here.
However, of most interest to EDXC delegates will be the second floor of the 1830 Warehouse, which has a small “Connecting Manchester” permanent exhibition. It covers communication, including telephones, television, studios and radio in the north west region.
