This is a top museum. The reason why I give it four stars instead of five is only because I had very young children with me - I discovered it by chance while walking back to the car park after a day out in Manchester. I would perhaps rate it higher without the 'kid' concerns.
There is an excellent history of people's political involvement, which includes the Peterloo Massacre in the 19th century, and all other big protests ever since. If you have even a passing interest in politics and people power, this museum will fascinate you and maybe even inspire you.
There were enough things to interest my older son of 5, but I think that if you have children, you might be better off taking them when they are a bit older.
I, as an adult thought it was an excellent find and look forward to being able to returning one day in different circumstances. It is well done - modern, with lots of multimedia, original banners and posters, videos and music and speeches, and recreated rooms and scenes.
