The Museum of Science and Industry is an extensive museum spread across five buildings with exhibits that range from textiles to electricity to the railways. With its industrial history in cotton production, Manchester is a good spot for such a museum. One of the newest galleries is the interactive "Revolution Manchester," where visitors will be challenged by a number of games and tasks having to do with everything from transport to the structure of matter. Other must-do experiences include walking through a Victorian-era sewer, admiring the display of old aircrafts and completing some of your own experiments.
In addition to perusing the museum's displays, one TripAdvisor user recommends enjoying some of the programs and demonstrations: "Although the exhibits were good in themselves, they were brought to life by the interesting talks given by some very excellent staff."
MOSI is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The museum is located in the Castlefield neighborhood and is accessible via the Deansgate-Castlefield Metrolink tram stop. Admission is technically free, but the museum suggests giving a donation of £3 GBP (or $5 USD). For more information, visit the museum's website.
