Weekend Reflections: National football museum kicks off
The National Football Museum opened last weekend. I made the most of a lovely evening on Wednesday and wandered around the city grabbing photos with some blue sky.
It's housed in what was the Urbis museum of cities from 2000 until a couple of years ago. The football museum then moved from Preston North End's ground to the centre of Manchester into this much larger space for the many thousands of exhibits.
I preferred the previous museum's subject matter but at least the entrance is free and am sure I will pop in sometime. Some photos from a I book I co-authored also appear at the museum. Wembley Stadium of Legends (Tomsett & Brand, Dewi Lewis Media, Manchester, 2007).
