It is always exciting to learn a bit about history when travelling, especially at the Manchester Museum. When you first arrive at the building, you will notice its incredible looming architecture with high windows reaching up towards the spires sitting on each side of the facade. Inside and up the first staircase you will be greeted by huge cast replica of a Tyrannosaurus rex’s skeleton and a cool exhibition on Ancient Worlds, introducing you to the Ancient Egyptians. Grab their museum map and make your way around their sections covering archery, botany, coins, earth sciences and more. If you are interested in animals and anatomy, then head to their taxidermy collection and see the bones and skulls of a wide range of mammals.
There is so much to see here in terms of artefacts and plenty of information to help you learn about the past and present. Once you are finished making your way through, grab something to eat at their Teacup Café. There is also a picnic area on the basement level if you prefer to bring your own snacks or lunch.

Whats on?

Manchester Museum also hosts events throughout the year including Museum Meets for adults and Family days on Big Saturday. Bring the kids and let them get hands on while creating and learning, come to storytelling sessions and more. If you are interested in learning more yourself, then join the seminars and temporary exhibitions covering hot topics and new discoveries.
No matter your reason for visiting Manchester, you will thoroughly enjoy a few hours at this museum. Grab yourself a room at Park Inn by Radisson Manchester City Centre just a short drive away.
