    We had a tour with Mick and Ray and it was absolutely fantastic. They were so passionate about everything. It was a really good experience and we will definitely be going back.

    Loved the operation ouch exhibition. Something for all ages. Fun things to do for kids in main exhibition. Lovely healthy cafe. Much improved for kids. Despite half being refurbished and aeroplane hall closed down there was still lots to do

    As football (soccer!) lovers, we made a pilgrimage to Manchester's National Football Museum. It's packed with fascinating exhibits, showcasing the sport's history and iconic moments. We loved seeing the club memorabilia and testing our skills in the Fanzone. A worthwhile stop for any football enthusiast visiting the UK!

    Fantastic characteristic museum, so much to see, learn and explore. Staff were friendly and two members of staff who were showing fossils are a credit to the museum, they were engaging and knowledgeable. I have been to similar museums across the country including Newcastle and Dundee and this is the best.

    Comprehensive, informative and engaging story of democracy. We learned a lot - and we would return to discover more.
    Good interactive exhibits; we didn't take our grandchildren but they would have enjoyed it. Only missing element from our point of view was a lack of recognition of the role of Methodism in the story, given that socialism owes more to Methodism than Marxism.

    Contains a wide range of artistic works, with a predominant focus on paintings from the Eighteenth Century through to the early Twentieth. There are, however, also some pieces and paintings outside these periods. There are also various specific exhibitions on display, making this sight a repeatable one over time.

    I hate chain coffee shops - overpriced and overhyped so always have a drink here when on a weekend visit to Manchester. Lovely surroundings, always pleasant staff.

    Great little museum but I felt some of the exhibits needed bringing up to date in some aspects as it was rather tired. The guides, mainly retired officers, were very knowledgable and willing to chat. I was disappointed with the first room we entered as rather than the dress of a High Sheriff I would have expected the uniform of a Police officer. There was lots of reading to get through which in the end we just skimmed past.
    What disappointed me was the lack of information on Policewomen. As a retired Policewoman I would have expected there to be more. There was little or no mention of women in CID or traffic roles.

    A must visit place if you are visiting Manchester or live in Manchester. It's situated right next to St.Peter's Square tram station. There are 4 floors and each floor has something to offer. The lower ground floor is dedicated more towards children and toilets, the ground floor has many reading alleys with a cafe, the 1st floor has the dome where the music library is (and what a masterpiece it is), the 2nd floor has some meeting rooms and computers, so does the third, 4th floor has more books and the entire lobby has shelves with books and articles.
