Lots to see! 5 out of 5 stars
Lots to see - we didn't have the chance to see everything as we were there for just a couple of hours. Great shows in the main hall though, and they loved looking at the cotton mill machinery. If you ask at the reception desk they will lend you a bag for littlies with a hat and some toys in so they can pretend to be train drivers.giddy
Needs serious update 1 out of 5 stars
nice museum but gets boring really quick especially for younger ones the science part upstairs needs a serious make over everything worn and outdated, baby play area is poor with nothing in there but carpetd33d33
