  • Nice museum is free to enter give you good information on the desk. The exhibits were interesting and had a focus on the impact of the technology on Manchester. Good balanced view on history too. The electricity exhibit was also good to see. Lots of useful info for kids and adults alike. Would very much recommend the visit. Though I think the electricity one was a temporary show.

  • Your enjoyment of this museum will be measured by your love of steam engines, cotton mills, and the history of electricity... If you fall into this group consider the score as 5 stars. Some effort made to entertain the kids, including smaller toddlers, but overall the displays can be a little 'dry' for smaller people. The ubiquitous museum shop and cafe are present. Entry is free but a donation is encouraged. Guide books and a sticker book for the youngsters is extra.

  • This is a great place to visit. You'll get a real feel for Manchester's industrial and scientific heritage. It's lovely to walk around and there many different areas with different types of exhibits. Your children will love it, as there are places to play and to try things out. The cafe serves tasty coffee and Danishes and the staff are friendly and welcoming.

  • Great venue for young and old alike. Plenty of fascinating history and child-orientated activities. Bistro was nice but service unbelievably slow - would have been faster in the busy cafe. But other than that, excellent.

  • Great museum. Free but donation s are welcome. Lots to do and see and there is a cafe and a bistro where the the choose and value on the food are excellent. Sadly the sister air and space museum opposite is closed due to the poor structure of the building. A great day out for all ages.
