Revolution Manchester Gallery
MOSI's newest gallery opened to the public on 29 January 2011. This gallery serves as an introduction to MOSI's subject themes, galleries and collections - and also highlights other heritage venues in the North West. It provides an overview of Manchester's rich legacy of world-changing industrial innovations and scientific discoveries.

The Gallery is divided into six sections: Transport Revolutions, Computer Age, Engineering, Energy, Cottonopolis and Structure of Matter. Each section tells a story running from the past to the future. Links between Revolution Manchester and the other galleries are shown on a vast 50-screen media wall.
