Kick-off the Holidays at the National Football Museum

Kick-start the holidays at the National Football Museum - with interactive displays, games and football fun for all the family.

14 January - 18 April 2016

Spend some extra-time during the holidays at the National Football Museum in Manchester - the ultimate football fixture. Right in the heart of the city centre, it's the go-to place to do and see all things football.

Check out the museum's latest exhibition, Pitch to Pixel: The World of Football Gaming: taking the family on a playable journey from retro gaming to the latest titles, with plenty of hands-on action for the whole team.

Fun interactive artworks offer new ways to play, and visitors can even get on the front cover of their favourite game. A must-visit for FIFA players, Football Managers and gamers of all ages.

Kids and big kids alike will love the interactive Football Plus+ activities - seven exciting footy games from Commentary Challenge to a full-sized Penalty Shootout. 

During school holidays there's always a full line-up of hands and feet-on activities too: from arts and crafts, football fitness sessions, and prize give-aways with museum mascot Pickles the Dog - it's guaranteed a winning family day out.
