Visit The Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, where action-packed galleries and working exhibits bring the past to life. Housed in the buildings of the world's oldest passenger railway station, you can see the wheels of industry turning in the Power Hall and marvel at the planes that made flying history, in the Air and Space Hall. Discover how science can be fun by getting to grips with the interactives in Xperiment, the hands on science centre and walk through a reconstructed Victorian sewer, complete with sounds and smells. Follow the thread of Manchester's textile history in Fibres, Fabrics and Fashion and discover technology that changed the way we live in Futures. Facilities include a contemporary restaurant serving a range of hot and cold foods and a gift shop, stocked full of unusual and exciting goodies.
