You don't have to be a fan of the world's most famous football club to enjoy a visit to their impressive 75,000-plus capacity stadium, but it helps. The museum tour includes a walk down the tunnel onto the edge of the playing surface of the 'Theatre of Dreams', where Manchester United's superstar footballers exercised their Premier League supremacy for 20 years, guided by the peerless Sir Alex Ferguson. To reach here take the Metrolink to Old Trafford.

The club has struggled since Fergie's retirement in 2013 but 2016 saw the appointment of the 'Chosen One,' José Mourinho, as manager, tasked with reestablishing United's supremacy while taking on its cross-town rivals Manchester City, who won the Premier League in 2012 and 2014.

Other highlights of the excellent tour include a seat in the stands, a stop in the changing rooms and a peek at the players' lounge (from which the manager is banned unless invited by the players) – all ecstatic experiences for a Man United devotee. The museum has a comprehensive history of the club and a state-of-the-art call-up system that means you can view your favourite goals.
