Our 3rd time in as many years. Excellent portrayal of the fight for greater democracy and the social improvement of the common man in Britain. Well worth a visit. Plenty of hands on activities. Good sound and vision learning for kids of all ages.
Really fascinating and interactive museum. Gives you a thorough and informative history of politics and society in Manchester in a chronological order. Lots of neat and unique ways to present the information as well (opening cupboards, handling objects, audio clips etc...)
