Really loved it. Very interesting with much to see and interact. It made me think about how much people had to fight for the rights we have nowadays

Absolutely love this museum!!! It isn't huge, but is absolutely packed with fascinating exhibitions! I learnt tonnes about the the history or democracy, women's suffrage, Manchester's past - and they frequently change the exhibitions, too. There's also a lovely little cafe staffed by volunteers. I would definitely recommend a visit! Suitable for all ages.

Visited here on 29/5/19. Interesting topic and some good displays, however I feel that overall this museum was pitched to a younger audience (eg: school kids)
