Modern and interactive

Rated:

Real improvement on the old museum in Preston. Its modern and also interactive which helps keep the younger generation engaged. Quite in depth on the history of football and all its aspects. Well worth a visit for anyone with an interest in the sport. Its free too and i found refreshments in the cafe to be fairly priced too.

Football nostalgia

Rated:

The place to visit for all UK football fans, displays the history of football from past to present with all the major events on display. The museum is fairly modern in its approach and is suitable for football fans of all ages. I would place it second to the Fifa Football Museum in terms of football museums i've visited.
