The Science & Industry Museum, has to be one of the UK’s Top museums solely dedicated to the ever popular subject of science, and also not forgetting Manchester’s main attributes, the Industrial Revolution. What I liked so much about this museum was its diversity and around every corner there is a subject that totally grips the mind. The Science & Industry Museum is a museum within a museum, and every attention to detail has been carefully planned by the staff. In my opinion a good three hours is needed here, if you can do that, you will get the full benefits of everything that is on offer.- Top 100 Review
