Always lots to see and do and everywhere is accessible for wheelchairs and buggies. Not much by way of disabled parking however or parking of any kind nearby. At the moment (May 2021) the engine hall and space hall are closed for refurbishment so what you can see is limited. The textile area is still up and going as is the experiment area for hands on entertainment. Currently there is a ‘Top Secret’ exhibition which is great for all ages. There are plenty of toilets including accessible ones and a fab shop near the entrance/exit selling souvenirs and cafe selling sandwiches and soup along with drinks. At the moment you have to book in advance. Tickets are still free with a recommendation of £5 donation (for the upkeep of the museum) still a (very) cheap day out.GOOGLE REVIEW

It's being redeveloped just now. However, the staff were excellent throughout: from the cafe to the ticket office and the volunteers, to the exhibition staff. I visited the Factory Records exhibition. Staff made sure that everyone entered in an orderly way so were not too crowded together. This was helpful from a social distancing, as well as, viewing perspective. Everything was clearly labelled and accessible. There was a children's exhibition on, too, which was busy and obviously being enjoyed. Great place, well worth supporting.GOOGLE REVIEW

Been many times and alway love it. Perfect place to discover Manchester's technological history and more. However: Most of the buildings were closed due to renovations (will definitely go again when it's done!) and there wasn't much notice that the buildings were closed - there is a page on the website - luckily we live nearby but it could be disappointing if you were traveling from further away.GOOGLE REVIEW

What a brilliant museum! Full of interesting displays and interactive things for children. You can spend a good few hours here. They also have a number of different exhibitions, some of which are free and others require a small charge. More details on their website. Easy to get to by public transport or taxi. There's no car park but there is parking on the road. The free city bus is a bit hit and miss as we found out, resulting in us missing our train! But the team helpfully tried to book us a taxi.GOOGLE REVIEW

It’s an interesting and fascinating experience.. to see how the culture of a place has been shaped through generations. Every city has a story to tell and places like this keep the story alive for the coming generations… kids will enjoy this fun science activity place on the 1st floor. I met this amazing volunteer, Christine at the museum … very friendly and passionate about computers…. Loved her spirit.GOOGLE REVIEW
