“Manchester museum, remains to be seen.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

The Manchester Museum is well laid out 3 floors all have good access for wheelchairs and lifts etc, With plenty of room to get around without bumping into people. There is plenty to see with so much variety and a fantastic display of items. I was particularly interested in the coinage. The size and weight of the different coins was incredible and its good we don't have to carry that sort of loose change around. I had a good but quick look around as my main reason for being there was to listen to lectures at the Kanaris suite situated on the second floor which is a conference centre which I think you can hire. A wonderful spend of a few hours, I am planning to take the Grandchildren soon and I know they will love it.

“Day Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Really enjoyed visit. True what other reviews have said about this being a smaller version of natural history museum. Some fascinating artifacts and dinosaur skeletons. Great place to go and being free is a bonus. Would definitely recommend it.

“Interesting and not too big to enjoy without exhaustion!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Loved it, great for people of all ages. Don't miss the mummies and especially the frogs and snakes! The T.Rex was awesome, even if it's just a cast of a real one. The butterflies were also interesting.
