Summer At Manchester Museum | What's On

Manchester Museum

Location: Manchester Museum, Oxford Road, Manchester

My friend is currently doing a little road trip through England to see friends he hasn't seen for a while before he heads off to Australia later this year. Yesterday, he came to visit me in my glorious hometown Manchester, and wanted to see something cool in the city so, of course, I decided to take him to Manchester Museum. Located on Oxford road, it's free and packed with stuff to see including this summer's 'Climate Control' exhibition and the super sick new space upstairs: The Study. Read on to find out all the museum has to offer this season and why you need to get down!

The Collections
From fossils, insects and animals to botany, bones and birds, there's loads to explore and read about as you walk around the museum. The museum also has an epic section dedicated to egyptology, the Vivarium where you can see a bunch of cool amphibians and reptiles and a 'Living Cultures' collection full of artefacts. They'res loads to offer whether its research for a project, something to do for the afternoon, or you just wanna get your nerd on.

Reworked top floor of Manchester Museum: The Study

The Study 
Situated on the top floor, The Study is a space where you can use the museum's research facilities, discover objects, get crafty and get some work done in a quiet area. The museum recommends that booking is essential, but don't worry - you can find out all the deets on their website here.

Nature Discovery
A really cute place to take little ones, the Nature Discovery area features a den to read in and an insight into the animals and nature living inside the forest. Going in this little corner of the museum was like walking into a fairy tale, so if you've got any under 5's you need to keep occupied, check out this free space on Floor 1.
