There are some interesting areas such as the viking past and wildlife on the isle of man but i felt it lacked in areas for free entry was quite large and alot to see but would have been easier if there was something directing u round as its easy to miss areas

Excellent current WW1 exhibition based around people's stories. Good place to go to get an feel for the history of the island, but could be a little more interactive. Good café for coffee and light meals.

During our visit to the Island we took a trip to the Manx museum, while the Manx history was interesting and some sections informative, we were a little disappointed with the WWI part of the exhibition, we were led to believe that it was going to be far more extensive than what it actually was.

The Manx Museum is a great place to spend a few hours learning about the history of the Isle of Man. Highly recommended.
