KidRated’s National Football Museum Top Tips:

  • While in Manchester why not watch a game at Man City?
  • You can also take a tour of Man Utd’s ground Old Trafford 
  • Sports lovers should also check more reviews of stadiums here and here

The National Football Museum can be found in the super cool Urbis building right in the centre of Manchester, one of the biggest football cities in the world. The museum itself is really interactive and so everyone can have lots of fun while also learning about the beautiful game!


It’s great for football-mad kids of all ages and there are loads of events for families – check here to see if there are any happening when you visit. There is also a discovery zone best for kids under five.


Admission is free, although it’s worth paying for the Football Plus experience. Watch the video above to see what Football Plus is all about. You can also take part in daily guided tours at 11am or 3pm – tickets can be purchased in advance or on the day.


You can refuel at the family friendly cafe at the museum after you have undoubtedly worked up an appetite taking part in the interactive exhibitions at the museum.
