Newest Review: ... the signs for Manchester Civil Justice Centre, which is right next door to the museum and much better signed! ***The museum*** Admission to the People's History Museum is free, which is brilliant, as it's somewhere I would quite happily go back to.

The exhibits them selves were marvellous.
