Mosi is one of the greatest venues not only in Manchester but also in North.
Great for families for young children or all other ages if they like science. I think it is a good place to introduce teens to science as well.

I've visited a lovely Harley Davidson exhibition here and other parts also very lovely laid out. Great staff and easy to access as well.

Not many people know this is here or want to go, and it is aimed more at young people of school age. But theres alot of interesting things to do and to look at, including a human hamster wheel, worth a look! and its free how can you go wrong. Only problem is parking outside it is ridicilously overpriced.

If you don't like this museum then you don't like museums as you will never find one as good as this!!! It's an absolute must & allow a whole day if you want to see & enjoy it all.
