  • It's good that this place is free. It would be a very tough ask to charge. If you have kids you will need to buy tokens for them to really enjoy it and they're quite pricey. Once you've been once you won't go back. It wasn't bad but it won't blow your socks off. It's free so I can't moan too much.

  • A good family day out. We took our family all teenagers on a shopping day to Manchester. We thought we would break the day up and take them to the museum. So much to see and do. They all enjoyed even the girls. So much history. Well worth it. Another visit planned.

  • Had a great few hours here. The volunteers/staff that work here are great and make it a really good experience. Interesting and interactive exhibits. Well worth a visit! And it's free!

  • Really great place. Even if you are not a football fanatic this place is enjoyable. It's free but there are some paid activities inside. Easy to get to on main bus routes or a taxi from city center would b around £8. You can book private tours or take yourself around. The layout is simple so no chance of missing anything. They attached cafe is football themed and just as good. Prices are as you would expect from a museum cafe but food was good.

  • Has some great objects, but is quite poorly curated meaning it can be a little bit confusing to navigate. I could have easily missed some key items. Volunteers (usually older people) know their stuff, but some of the young staff lack social skills and are more interested in chatting with each other than actually helping customers.
