Manchester United Museum opens David Beckham exhibition

Date Posted: 22/08/2013

Manchester United Museum and Tour has unveiled a new temporary exhibition to honour one of football’s most famous names, David Beckham.

David Beckham Footballer/Superstar will be on display for the next 12 months. School visits can celebrate his career at Manchester United and explore how he went from being a talented youngster growing up in north-east London to one of United’s most famous players.

Football kits and changing hairstyles

David Beckham first signed with the club at the age of 14 and the exhibition records his career at Manchester United, from the training kit he wore as a teenager, to his first team shirts from big matches such as the ‘99 Champion’s League Final.

In addition, there are interactive aspects to the exhibit. Famed for the precision of his free kicks, fans can predict exactly where within the goal posts he will place the ball during one of his many famous strikes.

Just as famous off the pitch as he is on it, ‘Becks’ is also well known for his changing hairstyle and children can relive some of these via an interchangeable portrait of his famous face.

School group information

A range of workshops and tours have been designed for primary school students. The Museum also provides presentations and Q&A sessions for Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4, Further and Higher Education students on a range of subjects, including leisure and tourism, and fitness and nutrition.
