Modern History Project
Manchester Airport and Modern History worked in partnership to arrange for schools and community groups to visit North West museums that tell the story of our industrial heritage and unearth the stories that shaped the modern world.
Working with a community artist the children have produced the wonderful artwork displayed in this exhibition to represent our region’s history and to encourage visits to these museums, mills and attractions in the North West.
