Having been to the museum a couple of times when it was in Preston (very good) I was interested to see how it would be different. Spread over four floors all the display cases were packed full of memorabilia with informative text to match (although the Rovers table-football table seems to have gone!!). There's a lot more interactive displays and videos in Manchester which made for an interesting wander around. I didn't do any of the Football+ things but they would be good to do if there was a group of you or with kids.
I especially liked the Homes of Football exhibition on the 3rd floor - I have a couple of prints from Stuart Clarke but hadn't until then been to one of his exhibitions.
At the same time I was there, there were quite a few B.Dortmund fans having a look around and I overheard one of them say they hoped their National Football museum (due to open in Dortmund 2014) will be as good as ours :) I did like the museum when it was in Preston, but it was out of the way, I think they've done a really good job with the new one and being in city centre Manchester hopefully many more people get to experience it.
