  • Inspirational museum with outstanding exhibits and really well thoughtful presentation. Cannot recommend it highly enough... As well as being on the site of the world’s first train station, the aviation and computing sections were great. Finally do not miss the exhibit on textiles and the textiles industry - it is truly world-class and the kids were totally absorbed by it.

  • Had a fantastic time here with my 18 month old. Lots of interesting and interactive exhibits that she really enjoyed and had fun playing with. Food options were good too, with a café and bistro on site. Only a couple of minor negatives: I found the doors around the museum really hard to open on my own with a pram, and the site itself is quite large so there is a decent amount of walking to do. Other than that, brilliant!

  • Love this place as a young teen and still do now as a full grown man. The whole family can enjoy this place and should be on the to-do list for anyone visiting Manchester young or old. The warehouse (pictured) full of old planes is probably the highlight for any dads out there and the main building is gonna be gripping for the little ones, the paid displays are inactive. The cafe and the gift shop are reasonably priced. The bathrooms are good and easy to find. The fact some displays are paid for is a let down, I wanna learn for free!

  • A good museum which is free entry (optional donation). Hands on exhibits for the children although many are not working. The engine and air and space exhibits are good for transport enthusiasts. The experiments zone is good for children, but is smaller than once was and a paid for exhibition now takes up much of the space. I wouldn't allocate a full day here. A couple of hours max would be sufficient. Children enjoy the hands on experiment activities.

  • Have visited many times and still enjoy a trip. The power hall and textiles areas are still great. Disappointed to find very little in the 1830's warehouse as there is so much empty space. And sad to see the electric and gas section was closed hopefully after some work it will reopen as this was always my favourite bit. Even though we visited on a wet bank holiday Monday and it was busy as the site is so big it didn't matter.
