Everyone can find something to love in this museum. Dinosaur fossils and live animals. The history of Manchester was well represented.

Hi, it's probably about a 10min walk from your hotel depending on how quick you walk or if you wanted you can get a magic bus (big blue one) that'll take you straight there in a few mins. Hope that helps. :0)
