Haçienda club doors join museum collection

The entrance of famous club reopens as exhibit

The doors of influential Manchester club The Haçienda have become a museum piece.

The loading bay doors of the club owned and run by New Order label Factory Records have been aquired by the Museum Of Science And Industry.

The Manchester institution added the doors to their collection for an exhibition celebrating the museum’s 25th birthday.

“The last 25 years have seen huge changes in Manchester‘s science and industry, as the city and region moves away from the core products of manufacturing and engineering, and into the service sector and creative industries,” said Collections Manager Pauline Webb.

The addition of the doors represents Manchester‘s move “through the final demise of the textiles and engineering industries and rise of the Madchester music scene in the 1990s”.
