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.

Needs serious update

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boring really quick especially for younger ones the science part upstairs needs a serious make over everything worn and outdated, baby play area is poor with nothing in there but carpet
