Now you can make yourself ‘At Home With The Pankhurst Family’

It was in October 1903 that I invited a number of women to my house in Nelson Street, Manchester, for purposes of organisation…Deeds, not words was to be our permanent motto

The words of Emmeline Pankhurst ring throughout the house here at Nelson Street and you can now explore our new immersive exhibition which tells the story of the Pankhurst Family and their lives in this radical home, as they began their fight for equality and took their campaign from parlour to parliament.

Our visitors are loving the hands-on exhibition, where you can explore the family’s lives, experience immersive AV interpretation of the suffragette fight for the vote, and then don a sash, pull up a seat at the parlour table and walk in the footsteps of these inspirational women.

inspiring…emotional…great…interesting…amazing…strong women…

These are some of the comments from people who’ve visited. Join us to explore this extraordinary story yourself.

We’re open every Thursday (and on Sundays from summer 2022) from 11am to 4pm. For more details, including how to book, see our museum website, here.
