        • Lots to do fro kids, not so much for adults. There are a couple of 'old fashioned' displays for adults, especially in the basement. It has some good railway engines too. The only downside is that the textile part of the museum is currently closed. The aircraft part of the museum is definitely worth visiting with several experimental aircraft. Staff were very helpful. Cafe looks good and does coffee and croissant deal before 11:00am.
        • I was pleased with my visit and took a second trip with the kids, exploring the activity area above the entrance. There were some schoolchildren already up there, which highlighted the need to arrange activities for age groups. My boys were consistently pushed aside by the older children. The visit to the power hall was less crazy and left a better impression with the kids, especially the running of the steam engine. While it would be nice to see interactive activities that could be run in the power hall, the presentation style was a bit soothing for the children around us and made for a better overall visit. Our final stop was at the airplanes. The kids were again fascinated by the exhibits and didn't really notice that the building itself is getting a bit tired and dated. I noticed a display of bicycles upstairs, but was closed for some reason. I hope that some work and funding is planned for refreshing the building around the airplanes.
        • An excellent FREE day out. Took my grandson (6) who really enjoyed the child friendly hands on displays and live short lectures with audience participation. Fabulous static displays covering transport, engineering, aero and cotton spinning. Good rest rooms and dining facilities. Well informed guides on hand to give informed talks on the exhibits. Brilliant experience.
        • It is a great place to take children as it make science interactive and interesting for children from 6 years. It is also a great place for adults at the same time as they're able to give information to adults while entertaining kids and teaching them. The map really helps, splitting the sections into 8, allowing you to navigate your day. A true day out for the family. All access and great food. The food is a bit expensive so would suggest going out and coming back if you can. OVERALL I WOULD SUGGEST THAT YOU GO AS ITS A GENERALLY GREAT PLACE TO GO!!
        • This museum is free to enter but has a suggested donation of £3 pp. Some exhibits you have to pay for but these are usually extra special and only on for a limited time. I would say the free exhibits are well worth it. My son and I particularly enjoy the hall of steam engines as well has the building with all the aircraft can easily spend a long afternoon here
