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.

  • 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.

  • Brilliant museum. Took my 8 and 10 year old first thing on a Sunday. It was lovely and quiet with lots of nearby parking. Great for their school projects with a frog/lizard area they and other kids loved. Its like a much, much smaller Natural History Museum in London but without the huge exhausting crowds and vast layout. The shop was good and not overly expensive either.

  • I'm surprised at most of the negative comments about this museum. I can't agree with them. I've been going here quite regularly since the 1980s. The major refurbishment some years ago was excellent and the continual improvements since, though less significant, keep it interesting and generally up to date. It's obviously not as big as the Natural History Museum in London but it has a similar appeal with the quality Victorian detailing inside and out. It's a small hidden gem. You can almost feel the same excitement that Victorians would have felt seeing some of the objects for the first time. The displays are well chosen and arranged, less cluttered than before, making space for broader selections of subject material. The balance of visual and written material is about right, so you can enjoy just looking if that's what you want. It's well maintained and I think the staff have done a good job. Its a great source of subject material for art students. The bugs and insects are amazing. Don't be put off by the negative comments. I think most kids and first time adult visitors will find it interesting. You should be able to spend at least half a day here without being bored. Car parking is a short walk away and not a problem.

  • We did not had enough time to explore the entire museum, I wish we had. Hosted in one of the university old buildings, it contains a wealth of information. The "natural history" area is well presented, perfect for teaching kids (and adults alike) about current environmental conditions. Like all European museums, it is full of interactive areas, keeping your interest peaked and everyone entertained.

  • Always fascinating and well looked after, Manchester Museum is a great place for any and all. If you want to look at something specific or just gaze and take in the sights, it's an excellent way to spend a few hours. The cafe is very nice, too!
