  • It is a very poor museum that you can visit in 20 minutes only. We were very disappointed because we expected to see much more excibits!  more »
  • Exhibition Mary as the moment where I visited this Museum, I have so been conquered by the expo and the museum itself. The visit is fast enough but can continue around the Park which is home to this building.

  • This is a small gallery, with some lovely piece. You can get around the whole place in 30 minutes. It has a range of different pieces, some older and some new.  more »

  • Interesting albeit a small and very limited display.
  • Not really sure why this place exists. The building is great to look at but the contents are pretty rubbish. Perhaps you need to have an interest in old clothes, but even then i don't see a narrative.
  • Free little museum to wander round if you're in the park anyway

Where to stay in Manchester

Some of Manchester's finest hotels are located near the city center. Staying there will keep you close to all of the city's main attractions, as well as its main road and rail networks. Manchester's centrally located hotels boast modern rooms, good food, and friendly staff. From there you can easily explore Manchester's famous pubs, rooftop bars, and restaurants. For a more leisurely and quiet experience of the city, venture farther away from the central areas. There you can explore a world of relatively inexpensive boutique hotels and self-catering apartments, especially convenient for visitors using Manchester as a base for exploring northern England and North Wales.
