“Not great for young children”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Visited with a toddler.

Glad it was free as would of been dissappointed. Not a great deal there but if youre into war etc probably worth stopping off at.

A few hands on activities but not much.

“Free and informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Parking available but is limited, free entrance and well laid out. Very informative and lots to see. Some interaction, Lots to read about and a moving film show. A cafe and a well stocked gift shop. A really good option for a rainy day.

“excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Traditional museum for all ages, from young to old. Always set out well, with plenty of imformation. Have been a few times and seen various themes. Cafe good for a coffee and bun before home. Well placed over the bridge from the Quays. The whole area has been re-generated making it the ideal place to be.

“Best views at Salford Quays”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We didn't have a lot of time to go round the museum, which looked very interesting and is free. However, we did pay the small sum to go up to the top and there were fantastic views over Manchester.
