General Comments
Manchester Museum of Science & Industry - We took our 3 year old and 8 year old with some trepidation - it's hard to find something to suit both. Especially something that is FREE. The museum is split into 5 areas. Our youngest loved the hanger full of aircraft/helicopters, etc. The power hall was full of locomotives, steam mcahinery, many of which you could "do" something with, plus experiments. The main building houses textiles and the all important "Xperiment" area - a mini-eureka where children can perform experiments. Ours also saw a demonstration of lying on a bed of nails which was tailored to all age groups and explained why it didn't hurt the visitor who ended up on the nails. There is also a working train (mainly weekends) and an 1830 warehouse which was of much less interest to the children.

A great day out - especially if it's raining !!!!
