The story of Manchester United is unlike any other club in the world. Beginning more than a century ago, it combines eras of total English and European domination with some of the greatest adversity faced by any football club.

Only at the Old Trafford Museum & Tour Centre can you see the stadium through the eyes of Manchester United greats themselves. Or get even closer to the world of Manchester United and share 130 years of football in the award-winning Museum.

Whether you’re a Manchester United fan or not, a visit to the Museum & Tour Centre is a day to remember!

The Museum also offers a range of education programmes for students of all ages, click here for further information.

Why not make your trip extra special by booking one of our Unique Tours? Cruise down to Old Trafford from Manchester city centre on a canal barge before embarking on a tour of the Theatre of Dreams, or take a tour with a Legend from the club such as Stuart Pearson, Norman Whiteside or Mickey Thomas.
