This museum is full of interesting facts and experiences for football lovers. It takes approximately 1 hour to fully look around this museum. I think that it is very good value for money as it only costed £5. It is free to go again within 12 months of your original visit. A visit to the National Football Museum offers the opportunity to take a photograph with the genuine Premier League trophy - with no additional fees! If you are around the centre of Manchester then this place is definitely worth a visit.
Marvelous museum for football fans, various historic moments explained. Useful information about many football legends. Nice games for children. How can I forget about the food and snacks available at the cafe, really delicious and taseful!!! Interested point to note that the ticket is valid for an year, u can visit anytime within the year after purchase date. Looking forward for our next visit!!!!
