Being the home of one of the most successful football teams in the world, it’s not surprising that the beautiful game has become part of the very fibre of the city. The National Football Museum is just 5 minutes from your serviced apartment in Manchester and is a great afternoon out for fans of all ages. The museum preserves, conserves and displays important collections of football memorabilia from all over the UK, not just from its home teams. The interactive exhibits give you the chance to be part of the game and brush up your skills.
Located just 20 minutes from PREMIER SUITES, the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry is a must see for all science aficionados visiting Manchester. This enormous display space, which contains thousands of artefacts & exhibitions, is one of the best places for children in Manchester as it has really cool interactive exhibits. The museum aims to tell the story of Manchester’s contribution to the development of science, technology and transport with displays from the industrial revolution, old steam trains and early fighter jets.
Manchester Museum is the city’s largest institution and is packed to the brim with enough exhibits to keep you entertained for an entire afternoon. The museum is owned by the University of Manchester and is set against the gorgeous backdrop of neo-Gothic buildings. A large part of the museum is dedicated to natural history, showing perfectly preserved plants, animals and insects. If you have even the smallest interest in the history of Ancient Egypt (and who doesn’t!) their archaeology exhibit with fill you with wonder and amazement.
Easily one of the most interesting exhibitions in Manchester, The Peoples History Museum doesn’t focus on the architecture, inventions or biodiversity that makes up the UK. Instead, it focuses on the history of the working people who gave the country its vibrant soul. It focuses on ideas that matter, like equality, social justice, co-operation, and a fair world for all. The museum covers topics that are more radical and controversial than a typical museum and is a fascinating day out for young and old.
Located in the gorgeous Whitworth Park, Whitworth Gallery is an art gallery containing over 55,000 items in its vast collection. It’s not hard to see why the museum has won many accolades including the Museum of the Year and Visitor Attraction of the Year.

The architecture alone is stunning both inside and out and the museum can be explored every day of the year.
