Man and Van’s visit to Manchesters science museum
Man and Van has had the pleasure of visiting The Science and Industry Museum located in Manchester’s town center. The museum is perfect for family days out and has a range of activities. There is something for everyone, with five building full of Manchester’s scientific and industrial past, present and future you’ll never get bored. Manchester Removals were glad to experience the mysteries and the wonders of Manchester’s Science and Industry Museum and there’s nothing to complain about because it’s all FREE!!!.
The museum has one of the world’s largest collections of all sorts of engines based in the Power Hall and you can learn how they came about, who invented them, when they were invented, how they work and how they have evolved, discover how Victorian engineering made Manchester the world leader in machine tools. Also learn about the textiles and the paper making industry and how they were brought to the Manchester and how they shaped modern Manchester, before the eighteenth century the paper making industry was concentrated around London, by 1807 Bury became a center of paper making machinery manufacture. Find out how are sound systems have come from wax cylinders to walkmans.
The Museum has much more to go and see, they have a large variety of subjects like Transport, Communication, Energy, Industry and Innovation, Science and Technology and people. They explore all prospects of the subjects and have demonstrations that you can join in with and experience, so you get more of an idea and understanding on them. Man and Van has joined in with the demonstrations taking place at the time of our visit and found it a great help in understanding the subjects.
There are learning classes at the museum for people studying in the same subjects as the Museum, unfortunately they are not all free although some are but you would not have the same opportunities else where.
Manchester Man and Van’s experience at the museum was outstanding and Man and Van had the opportunity to join in activities and understand a bit more about how Manchester’s industry has got to where it is today. Manchester is really glad to have shared this with you and hopes that you will visit the Science and Industry Museum yourself, so you can enjoy the experience for yourself and find out what else happens there.
There is also a cafe so you can sit down and have a drink or a bit to eat and if you would like a souvenir you can visit the shop.
