Wednesday Walks | Museum of Science & Industry Manchester

If you didn’t know already, I love museums.  I love strolling through them and immersing myself in history, culture and art – always makes me feel like I’m learning something new about the world all the time.

Today’s post features my visit to the Museum of Science & Industry in Manchester, on what was a very cold, wet and windy day.  Horrific.  Unfortunately this was not helped by the fact that the Museum itself is split up into four separate buildings (all of which are very large warehouse type buildings, meaning there isn’t a lot of heat!) and that I have terrible circulation.

Nevertheless, I got to see some awesome stuff, some of which I took some very rubbish pictures of! (Not totally my fault – it was just a very dimly lit museum!)

Aside from the terrible weather, I had a good little browse.  I think it’s a great sort of place for a family day out as it’s right in the middle of Spinningfields – so afterwards there are plenty of places to grab a bite to eat or do a little bit of shopping.  I’ll be sure to check it out again…maybe when the weather warms up a bit and stops raining!

Don’t forget to check out how I spent my lunch break last week at The National Museum Cardiff.

If you have enjoyed this post, please do give it a like (and give the blog a follow too using the buttons if you already haven’t!) And comment below if you have been to the Museum of Science & Industry before, and if so, what did you think?

Until next time! x
