AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Did you know that the world’s first water-powered cotton spinning machine was produced by a barber? Or that Manchester University professor Ernest Rutherford became the first person to split the atom in 1917? The Museum of Science & Industry will walk you through Manchester’s gritty history, including a crawl through a typical Victorian sewer (watch out for the rats), a steam train ride, Shackleton jets and exhibitions exploring the industrial revolution. Most of the exhibitions are free, but some of the more obscure galleries charge a small fee.
