Just go and get lost in the stuff. I love trains so life was easy for me. But the planes across the way we're the lost interesting bit. Enjoy.

Visited this Museum in Feb 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed it! It was very interesting as well as helpful guides dotted around. I wouldn't be jumping to go here again anytime soon as its more of a one off thing to see.

I have been coming to the Museum of Science and Industry since I was a kid and I still love it to this day! I must visit at least once a year, as it's a fantastic way to spend a rainy day, for all the family.

M.O.S.I. is such an interesting place, with lots to see and do. Extremely informative, gives you insight into many things you wouldn't have thought about. Special event days mean you may have to pay to get into those, but always check first with the museum. Great place for anyone really, and you can wander around at your own pace. For... More
