At Home With The Pankhurst Family
Discover the extraordinary story of the Pankhurst family and the suffragette campaign for votes for women, from the place it all began. Find out how life in radical Manchester led Emmeline and her family to begin their fight for equality, and how they took their campaign from parlour to parliament.
From the Edwardian parlour to contemporary Manchester, follow our timeline of women's activism in the city, and explore our crowd-funded suffragette garden, where you can take a seat at the table (or on one of our suffragette-themed benches) to discuss your own campaign.
Entry is by pre-booked ticket, with up to 8 tickets available in each timed slot.
Tickets are free, with a suggested donation of £5.
Opening hours: Thursdays: 11.00am to 4.00pm.
For more details, including how to book, visit our museum website.

How to get here
By Bus: Several bus routes run from Manchester City Centre towards the Pankhurst Centre - you'll need to get off at the Manchester Royal Infirmary. Services include 15, 18, 41, 42, 43, 50, 53, 111, 142, 143, 147, 197, V1, V2.
By Bike: We don't have facilities for cycle parking at the moment, but there are public bike racks outside Morrison's on Grafton Street and at the corner of Oxford Road and Nelson Street.
By Train: Oxford Road Station and Piccadilly Train Station are about a 30 minute walk from the Pankhurst Centre.
By Car: There is no parking at the Pankhurst Centre. There is a NCP / Manchester Royal Infirmary car park on Grafton Street, a short walk away.
Access: The Pankhurst Centre is not currently as accessible as we would like it to be. Wheelchair users are advised to call 0161 273 5673 in advance of their visit, so we can make sure you'll have the best possible access through the museum. We're working hard to ensure that the Centre will be accessible to everybody in the future.
