The Manchester City Experience Museum was recently recognised for its fantastic contribution to tourism in Manchester when it was ‘Highly Commended’ in the “small visitor attraction of the year” category at the Manchester Tourism Awards 2004. Manchester Evening News then described it as “…the best show in town”.
This is the second major accolade to date for the Museum as the “Experience” was shortlisted for an Award For Excellence at the Museums & Heritage Awards – the only sporting attraction ever to be shortlisted. The Manchester City Experience – Museum & Stadium Tour combines the rich sporting history of Manchester City Football Club with a 75 minute tour of the awe inspiring City of Manchester Stadium. The Tour includes the Box Level, the Corporate Lounge, the Directors’ Box, Dressing Room, the Walk of Pride / Players’ Tunnel, Warm-up room, Press facilities, the Pitch Side and Dugouts. The Experience begins at the club museum which encapsulates its 125 year history and the fanaticism that it has inspired. You can try your hand at being the next John Motson by commentating on glorious goals from City’s past, relive the greatest moments on the Video Jukebox, or simply spend your time examining some of the club’s extensive memorabilia. Or, if you prefer, simply soak up the atmosphere with your behind-the-scenes tour of the City of Manchester Stadium. Your guide will give you an insight into the day-to-day activities of the club, allowing you to glimpse what really goes on! Walk in the footsteps of your favourite players down by the pitch or admire the grandeur of the building from one of the executive lounges.
