Hi Kenneth, thanks for such a great review. It's four floors, but we pack as much football jollies as we can into that space!

Good day out here. Free entry is a plus!! As a woman with no interest in football I still enjoyed looking at all the memorabilia and photographs.

We went in looking for the Bee’s in the city and stayed for a look around. Excellent museum, some very interesting things to look at even if your not in to Football.

Free entry but can pay for extra's like a photo with league cup and premiership trophy. Plenty to see and do.

Visited the football museum in June 2018 and was very impressed with it. Free to enter, with an optional donation made it tremendous value for money. Must see for a football fan visiting Manchester. Could easily spend hours here looking at all the displays. Suitable...More
