Manchester has quite a lot to share with visitors in terms of its contribution to science and industry. With 12 permanent exhibitions, the city does a fantastic job putting its accomplishments on display in the form of actual historical objects. Contained within the museum are not only aircrafts like the impressive RAF AVRO Shackleton and the Supermarine Spitfire, but also a working cotton mill, locomotives (including one that people can ride on the weekends and bank holidays), the first computer and more. Interactive opportunities like crawling through an old sewer, settling into the Planetarium to do some star-gazing, and a 4D theatre complete with moving seats and sprays of water are other informative and fun ways to learn about the city’s rich history.
