National Football Museum review Rate it

Although the National Football Museum's move to Manchester (from Preston) has not been without controversy, it seems fitting that Manchester, a city known the world over for its footballing prowess, will soon be its home.

Due to open in late 2011, the museum holds both the FIFA and FA collections, including the hallowed ball used in that World Cup final (1966, if you must ask), while changing exhibitions will add interest to permanent displays. The museum itself is housed inside Urbis, once Manchester's ill-fated 'museum of the city', a striking glass building that is being given an £8 million overhaul in readiness for its latest incarnation as the home of British football.
