“Summer day visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is an excellent museum set in a great location. I took my son along and although some of the exhibits require guidence it is a great open space to move around. The location is very good for getting to from major roads and parking is easy.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Visited here while in Manchester for a concert. Was really surprised that I enjoyed the visit so much. The displays are really good and it was touching to read the letters etc written by soldiers spanning the times and wars.
The display of the part of the World Trade Centre really makes you think about things and appreciate what others have been through.
Well worth a visit.
