I went to visit this about 2 years ago and enjoyed it a lot. On a recent repeat visit to manchester, my companion, who had not been before, wished to go. I said i would have a quick look to keep them company, then leave them to it.. But instead found my self captivated once again, spending several hours there..
Yes, some aspects could have been gone into in more detail, and yes there is a little bit of 'dumbing down' to be kiddie friendly - but still more than enough for the grown up to learn and appreciate. You take in as much as you wish = and if even one child gains an insight into British politics, thats a major gain.
When the usual 'museum fatigue' set in, we retreated to the cafe. The prices are a little on the high side, but we looked at this as a way of supporting them.. Don't go "nearly two quid for a cup of tea!", but see it as £3.50 admission with a free tea and cake- superb value.
It was half term, and the museum and especialy the cafe were an island of calm and sanity from the mayhem of the MOSI cafe.
