Owner description: The Manchester Museum is home to an array of treasures from the natural world and the many cultures it is home to. Highlights include a T.rex and fossils of other pre-historic creatures, ancient Egyptian artefacts and live amphibians and reptiles. You can handle objects from the collection, take part in hands-on activities or enjoy a glass of wine of cup of coffee whilst exploring the latest ideas in science, culture and the arts.

The title of my review pretty much sums it up! ;-)

Love the Manchester Museum, and rate it above the Natural History Museum in terms of how interesting it is (having lived in both Manchester and London, and had the luxury of both as my 'local').

Well worth a visit, and if you don't want to walk from the City Centre, hop on any of the buses going up Oxford Road (if you want specific numbers, 42, 142, 43, 143 are all every few minutes) and it's inexpensive to get there - will take you about ten minutes from Piccadilly Gardens.

Spur of the moment visit. Only managed to get around floor 1. The Living Worlds exhibition is AMAZING. Was a short visit but going back next week. Highly recommend a visit....

After the very long walk the museum is not too interesting compared to other similar museums that I have visited. It was free though.
