Please note that, due to maternity leave, there will be no curator at MJM from June 2017 to March 2018. During this period the museum team will not be able to answer research enquiries or provide access to the collection for research purposes. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this. 


The Museum has collections of objects, documents, photographs and oral histories which can be made available to researchers if prior notice is given. The Museum assists with many research requests, both from individuals and organisations.

Visitors who have items that they think may be of interest to the museum are advised to arrange a suitable time with the curator to bring them in.

The curator can be contacted via on 0161 830 1436 or e-mail
