National Football Museum, Manchester Reviews

  • Superb place charting the history of football in England and so much more. Unique artifacts illustrate key points in the development of the game from the very beginning. Plenty of interactive stuff may well be designed for the younger visitors but many of more mature years get into the swing of things. Temporary exhibition (until March 2019) of photographs by Stuart Roy Clarke is a particular highlight as it concentrates on the spectator experience. Handy for Victoria Station, the museum is free to enter but is a registered charity and donations are welcome. Very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended.

  • It was a great experience, got to hold the league and fa cup trophies in my hands. The artifacts were really cool, especially the world cup ones. A great place for football fans and a good place to start for the ones starting to watch the game.

  • Surprisingly interesting. I am not much of a football fan so I was expecting this to be quite dull. Lots of interesting and interactive activities for all ages. The penalty shootout area had a queue with 20 minute wait time but well worth it. Clearly a very popular activity. My personal favourite was probably the museum section. Very interesting. Why dont they have something like this in London!

  • Excellent museum with a wide range of exhibits for people of all ages and at very reasonable (voluntary) costs. Interactive games a lot of fun. Excellent accessibility for wheelchair users. Love the Michael Jackson statue!

  • An excellent museum with unique displays. Lots to do and you could spend at least 2 hours here without a problem. It is a shame that there are a lot of additional fee-paying activities for a 'free' attraction.
