We booked in with 6 friends and their babies to the ‘Baby Moves’ sensory session at the National Football Museum in Manchester which is in the Urbis building.
The class itself was £3 and lasted from 10.30-11.30 and entry to the museum is free – you can make a donation voluntarily.
There were no other babies there so we had the class to ourselves. The under 5s room is a lovely space which is open all of the time – handy to know if you are in Manchester City centre and need somewhere to take little ones for a rest / feed / shelter from the rain.
Staff were friendly and helpful and the lift is great for getting buggies and prams into.
The session was structured but relaxed and all of us enjoyed it. Although it was led by a member of museum staff, we had freedom to do as much or as little of each activity as we wanted to.
We particularly enjoyed rolling on an exercise ball, bubbles and tummy time.
Afterwards all of us including buggies had no problem fitting in the cafe which was a bonus – and they had decaf tea.
All in all a great city centre resource at any time of the week and for £3 a lovely sensory class – well done NFM!
