My family and I had a lovely visit to this museum. My grandkids loved it (a 6yr old and a 10 yr old). There's plenty to see and it's great that you can touch lots of things. The kids enjoyed writing with Quills. The Stockport...More

Visited to see the Strawberry Studios museum. Lots of information on 10cc and other artists. Really interesting. It should finish end of January but it has now been extended to the end of February. Free entry but they do accept donations. Well worth a visit.
