Manchester is famous for its rainy days which is probably why there’s so much to do to keep the kids entertained. We’ve got the world's biggest and best football museum, the UK’s longest indoor skiing and snowboarding slope, and one of the largest trampoline arenas in Europe. And there’s four floors of displays and exhibitions at the Manchester Museum including Egyptian mummies and the skeleton of Stan the Tyrannosaurus Rex.
