I am not a soccer fan and I’m sure it’s wonderful for those who are. But I still found it fascinating from a cultural point of view and how soccer has evolved. The Bradford fire and the German team whose plane went down and the...More

An impressive building with confusing entrance...An initial poor reception in the ground floor café by smart- alec staff member was overcome by great friendly staff in the museum itself. Really chatty and informative and pleasure to meet. The exhibits were good but not the wow...More

I took my 10 year old nephew and he loved it. It's a great attraction for football fans. I saw a couple of complaints that the only thing that was free was the exhibits. I figured that was par for the course so we'd try...More

Disappointing trip. Unless you payed money for each one the only thing you could do was look at old memorabilia and read a bit about football history which was very disappointing.

This was a spare of the moment thing. I wasn’t jumping for joy as not a football fan- other half is so was more for him than me. I Actually did enjoy it and was some interesting factors.

Very enjoyable and I'm not that interested in football. Great displays and lots of football history that anyone would remember. It's free to enter, but be prepared to pay if you want a guide.

It looks like a 10 minute walk - along the river - cross on Blackfriars st the left along Deansgate - head past cathedral and museum on town centre just across from the Printworks Centre.
