You could be Manchester Museum's first visitor following our £15 million transformation

We have launched a competition to find our ‘first official visitor’ to open our doors on 18 February 2023.

The competition is open to everyone. To enter, simply explain why the museum holds a special place in your heart.


Email your stories and memories to,

or tweet @McrMuseum using the hashtag #MMFirstVisitor.

Closing date: 20 January 2023

The entries will be judged by a panel made up of museum staff and the person with the winning story will be invited to officially open the museum on 18 February 2023 and receive a gift bag full of beautiful products from the new Museum Shop.
