Manchester Museum - Review
The Manchester Museum which is looked after the famed University of Manchester is the perfect introduction to this lovely city. The place is home to some amazing displays that include natural historical ones as well as live animals in the newly introduced “Vivarium”. It is certainly an awesome place to take the children.
Mummies, Fossils, art objects, minerals and a host of other artefacts await the visitor at this extremely well thought of venture. You will be able to learn a lot about the ancient Greek and Roman cultures as well as a lot more through the painstakingly collected exhibits.
The history of the natural world has also been displayed with the help of stuffed animals and the archeological exhibits will leave kids as well as adults completely enthralled. They also have a lovely green house where you can see how the food we eat is grown. The olives and the pomegranates are put up for exploration. The collection of artefacts related to this beautiful city is especially worth a see.
All in all, the museum does a wonderful job of engaging popular interests and keeping people gazing in wonder throughout. Do give this quirky and wholesome museum a try while in Manchester.

Manchester Museum, Manchester Reviews
Excellent museum in a great location. Wonderful place for children, with the T-Rex and elephant skeletons being a particular highlight. The stuffed animal room is excellent, and the living amphibian room also fantastic. The cafe and gift shop are very good to, with the coffee and food being of a very high standard at reasonable prices. Also, the collection of mummies is another highlight.
This is one of the gems of Manchester. I always love going round. Have taken multiple people around with me when they visit Manchester. Even took my wife there on one of our first dates. Lots of fascinating stuff to see. The staff are fab, super friendly and informative. Would highly recommend it if you are looking for something to do. Warning - I've never gotten round the whole place in one trip so give yourself lots of time :)
Always so good here. Lots to do and see. Live reptiles and more. Such fun for all ages and a tuck shop at the end. The also have activities for the children. Definitely recommend. Free entry too!
I've visited the city many times and was surprised how I'd managed to miss this place! About a 20 walk out of the main shopping district the museum is part of the University. Various exhibits, with lots of things to see in a well presented format. It was mid week when I visited, fairly quiet aside a group of school kids. A great place to spend some time wandering around.
Fantastic day out,kids loved it! Great staff,friendly and on hand to answer any questions you may have. Gift shop a little pricey for certain items but when you take into account the free entry it's not really an issue. Oh and did I mention it has a T Rex???!!
