National Football Museum, Manchester Reviews

  • If like me you're a football fan then you'll love this museum. It has contemporary and historical exhibits covering the beautiful game from its inception up to Russia 2018. It's an interactive experience where you can be a commentator, ref, penalty taker or just watch or listen to players and managers from days gone by. You can even have your picture taken with the Premier league trophy. All in all it's a great experience for any fan of the game.

  • Spent an enjoyable afternoon here with my son. The staff are very good - both friendly and knowledgeable about the Museum displays. There is lots to see, things to do, and all with free entry! Although you can donate to have your photo taken with both the FA Cup and the Premier League trophies. The cafe deserves a mention too - good food - and a flat white coffee for just a pound!

  • Really good day out and some great exhibits that opened the kids eyes to how it used to be. Entrance is free though donations are greatly appreciated. Credits will need to be purchased for some of the interactive exhibits but wouldn't ruin the visit if you didn't do these. This is the only reason it didn't get 5 stars though.

  • Very worthwhile museum. You could spend hours here looking at everything or if you're pushed for time, there are plenty of bigger exhibits. Something of interest for supporters of all UK clubs from non league to Premier League with a sprinkling of novelty showpieces. No football fan would leave disappointed.

  • Wanted to come for a while. Great experience. Good exhibitions. Excellent value for money. You don't have to pay. Donation based but to hold the cups and do extras fee applies. Tea and cake in cafe/bar reasonably priced.
