With access to 4.5 million artifacts from every continent, The Manchester Museum is a vital research facility for the University of Manchester. The neo-Gothic building is centrally located on the university campus, so you can combine a museum visit with a tour of the university grounds. In 2011, the museum opened Living Worlds, an exhibit that encourages visitors to reflect on their own attitude toward nature. The Ancient Worlds exhibit involves a hands-on approach to explore the work of archaeologists. In 2013, Nature's Library opened to the public holding thousands of artifacts against the backdrop of Gothic Revival architecture. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Manchester holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the The Manchester Museum and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Loved the building and loved the collections on exhibition. Great time spent at the Manchester Museum. I especially loved the availability demonstrated by the staff to answer all your questions. 
  • We had our wedding here. It was awesome. The museum just lent it self to being the perfect venue for us and the day was fantastic. We owe a huge thanks to all the Manchester Museum staff who were warm, friendly and highly professional; they really knew what they were doing and the whole event ran seamlessly.
  • This museum is glorious. As well as being a beautiful, intricately laid out building, the exhibitions were top class and creatively delivered. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for something entertaining and quietly educational. It's free too which is an added bonus, although I would happily have paid an admission charge.
  • Fantastic day out exploring the museum: From selfies with Stan the T-Rex, to hunting for tree frogs hiding away in the vivarium & wandering around an amazing array of displays and exhibits on all manner of subjects. Truly something for everyone, of every age, and all for a donation of your choosing by way of entry fee! We'll definitely be returning :)
