The childrens area kept the children entertain for 1minute. MOSI has much more to keep the young ones entertained.

Loved it, great for people of all ages. Don't miss the mummies and especially the frogs and snakes! The T.Rex was awesome, even if it's just a cast of a real one. The butterflies were also interesting.

I'm not really into museums but this was a great way too kill half a day. Free admission is a bonus, easy too get to as well, just jump on one of the many free shuttles around Manchester.
