Lots to see here and I could have taken a lot more time to see the exhibits but it was quite busy and sometimes noisy with school visits etc. Quite nice to see the Egyptian relics as well as the T-Rex skeleton

Very well presented and lots of interesting items. Lovely to see many things for children too which we felt was such a great way for them to learn about history, nature and the environment.

As avid history and museum fans, Manchester Museum is a lovely place to visit! They have multiple areas to fit all interests from ancient to natural history, to space and culture. A wonderful museum that is still interesting after multiple visits!
