    • The National Football Museum in Manchester is the world’s biggest and best football museum. An essential part of any visit to the city, the national celebration of the national game offers free entry, and is open 7 days a week. The museum explores the cultural and social impact of the game, while featuring iconic objects including the Jules Rimet trophy, the 1966 World Cup Final ball, and the shirt worn by Diego Maradona during the infamous 'Hand of God' goal in the 1986 World Cup. A programme of changing exhibitions explores how art and culture around the world has been affected by the growth of the game, and a learning and education programme reaches out to visitors of all ages. With a floor full of fun interactive exhibits and opportunities for kids big and small to get hands (and feet)-on, the National Football Museum offers a unique visitor experience for fans and non-fans alike.
