I had a great afternoon visiting this museum. If you are not from Manchester you’ll have to pay £11 online or £12 at the entrance. The museum has multiples floors and some interactive games. But its mostly about Manchester and a bit about the World Cup. Still a nice experience if you have a free afternoon I’d say its worth it!

Good collection of football history. It will be cheaper if buy ticket online and it is valid to enter multiple times through out the year. You can experience multiple events happen as part of football match like live commentary. One goal shoot-out events organiser at the top floor of the building with additional charge but you have to spend lots of time in queue to get your turn.

Cool museum, it’s fun to look at for any football fan, was mostly English football which was fun to learn about but would have loved to have seen more European stuff! It’s smaller than I expected. The last (top) floor was just about women. Felt like they didn’t need a whole floor for that. But it was good to pass an hour

I have visited this wonderful collection of football history a number of times going back to the days when it was at Preston but here, I want to focus on the Manchester incarnation. The museum was always free entry until a few years ago (2019) when they started charging £11 to enter which badly affected the numbers of those who attended which is a shame because something like this should be free for everyone and not just those who reside in the local area. A family pass is about £28 for 2 adults and 2 kids. So, the museum entry aside, what’s on offer inside? The entrance is a great start as leading up to the entry doors, there are stepping plates to remember players and managers from years gone by. It’s a nice touch before you even get inside the door. Once inside the venue, there are a plethora of sights over a number of levels. Things are mixed up a little to avoid the repetition of seeing the same things over and again. Mind, many of the items on show are permanent pieces and rightly so. The museum hosts exhibitions throughout the year and you can finish up in the museum store and cafe before leaving to explore more of what’s on offer in Manchester. The last visit I made meant I was able to see a Pele exhibition which was absolutely fantastic. If you are a football of any degree, this place is worth a visit. Even if you aren’t or just hold a passing interest, it’s worth the trip. Despite my personal disagreements with entry prices, I’ll be going back again in a couple of months to see the new changes and seasonal exhibition, “When Football Was Football”.

If you are a Football fan, you cannot miss this Museum. As the only national football museum in the UK, it is heavily focused on the game within the boundaries of the island and information on world cups in general. The museum displays exquisite football history from its beginnings until what it is today. It has awesome interactive tools for engaging with the past, videos about former stars discussing historic events and a whole level for testing your skills (such as scoring penalties, dribbling, shooting aim and goalkeeping reflexes).
