Manchester - things to do?

I'm taking boys to Manchester for the day on Tuesday. Any tips for the best place(s) to head for?

We're travelling by train, so venues easy walking distance from central railway station preferably, (and the cheaper the better of course!) Boys are 3.5 and 5.5, bright for their age, and love museums and art galleries - preferably more traditional ones, rather than all-singing all-dancing interactive ones. We all hate shopping.

Is the Museum of Science and Industry the best bet? manchesteronline.co.uk is helpful, but a mum's tip, would be better!

Look at www.netmums.com/Manchester. It's free to register and they will tell you all the best places to go with kids, family friendly pubs and restaurants, indoor and outdoor play areas and basically everything you need to know about children and Manchester! I love that city! Have a great time! Know wot I mean like?
