The Museum of Science and Industry

The Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester is located on the historic site of the world’s oldest surviving passenger railway station. It contains a huge collection of machinery, engines and trains, tracing the development of British technology and industry from the Industrial revolution to the recent past. It's an extremely impressive collection of Victorian engineering, making modern gadgets seem almost trivial in comparison to the grandeur, scale and soul of these steam engines, trains and machines.
