I had a really fun free day out with my family. My children particularly enjoyed the family show about steam trains and a rocket making activity. There were five buildings to explore covering a range of areas from transport to textiles and even a gallery of toilets and sewers!A great free family day out!

museum of science and industry is located on liverpool road in the heart of manchester. it is open practically all year round and is a fun yet educational day out. you definately need a good few hours to look around here as there is quite a lot to see. to name a few there is a cotton mill where you can watch demonstrations about textiles, there is also a victorian sewer display where you can look and smell for yourself what they really used to be like. its a new experience. there is part of the museum which shows you what rooms from a house would typically look like in the past and there is a display which still has some of the oldest trains still around. it really is ...

The Museum of Science & Industry is a great place to go if you want to keep the kids amused, but without paying ludicrous prices. It's open from 10.00am - 5.00pm every day, except 24 - 26 December and 1 January. I don't know whether they previously charged for admission (other reviews), but entry into MOSI is now free. Car parking on site costs £5.00 (£3.00 after 3pm) and there are several other pay and display car parks outside. Charges apply for the special exhibitions however, which at present is "Body Worlds 4 - The original exhibition of real human bodies". I haven't seen this exhibition so can't comment specifically, but ... Read the complete review

MarsQuest @ The Manchester Museum of Science and Industry Last week my rocket scientist sister and I visited MarsQuest, a self explanatory new exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. She’s more of a space geek than I am but I am interested in the topic and have a vague knowledge of things thanks to a Sci-Fi obsessed family and an, ahem, GCSE in Physics. She, well, she has a masters in astrophysics, a PhD in astrophysics and currently works as, you’ve guessed it, an astrophysicist. Who do you think enjoyed the trip more? Read on and find out. The Museum of Science and Industry is not my favourite place in the ... Read the complete review

This is how a museum should be. It is designed primarily for child and people who cannot resist having a touch. Its is fantastic, exhibits include working steam engines, trains and plenty of hands on exhibits. One of my favourites is the air and transport museum attached to the science and industry museum (included in the price) My children particularly enjoyed the Xperiment section. This is truly a hands on section of the exhibition, the kids loved it. Entry fee is great,only £5.00 for adults and the kids go free. Plenty of car parking space but this will cost you and extra £1.50 To find the museum travel down Deansgate in the city centre and ... Read the complete review
