In this section you will find inventions which kick started the industrial revolution, objects from the region’s major industries, and objects which shaped and formed the background to the daily lives of ordinary people.

This unique collection tells the story of how the inventors and industrialists of the North West changed not only their local area but Britain and the world, leaving a legacy which continues to the present day.
