The Museum of Science and Industry is a very unique museum worth visiting in Manchester. The museum is housed in pretty rustic buildings that are worth a note and it is home to some amazing displays pertaining ti innovation of every sort.

There are exhibits that describe the evolution of textile machinery. Another interesting thing to see is the history of the X-Ray. There is an Air and Space Gallery which is perfect for the young space enthusiasts. Perhaps one of the most interesting attractions is the Manchester Underground display which delves into the secrets of the city’s sewers which might sound disgusting but is quite interesting.

And that isn’t even the beginning of it, the museum displays are huge vast and varied so there is a lot to see and do and most importantly learn. Do not miss this one, especially if you are travelling with the family.

Museum Of Science And Industry, Manchester Reviews - Write a Review

  • Let's start with FREE, well you are asked for a donation on going in but I feel mine was well worth it. The exhibits were well thought out, there were a number of working exhibits, the spinning and weaving one was particularly impressive, plus the steam engines to explore. Suffice to say our kids were fully entertained for 4 hours and still wanting more.

  • Really great place for getting information or spend time with your family. I was there all day and still didn't have enough time to see everything. It is free but recommend small donation £3. It's worth at least £5. You can see some free shows with explanation how thigs work. Definitely worth to visit

  • Entry is free to main museum with a suggested donation of £3 (Oct 2017). There are a few interesting (free) exhibitions including textile technology and the social rules that went with it. There is also a exhibit for steam engines and some trains and carriages. Across the road in is the aerospace hangar where yiu can see some planes Unfortunately to get the best experience you need to pay for some attractions, which I suppose let's the museum offer more variety with attracting external exhibitions and let's you tailor your visit. Bit hard on the pocket sometimes though.Overall enjoyable family experience.

  • Lovely large museum about the history of Manchester and history of the Industrial era. The best part of the museum for me is the Air and Space segment, but the rest of it is well worth a visit too. Free entry, though you can donate. The talks where they demonstrate how some of the machines work are also extremely interesting. Friendly staff and a friendly place.

  • If there is a museum you should do in Manchester it's this one. Great stuff, well done and really nice place + nice coffee place next to it. Good to visit to learn more about the story of the area. People fan of trains will like this place as it has a good bit about steam engine.
