Our five year old grandson was fascinated with the dinosaurs, bows and arrows, swords and the Egyptian gallery. There's lots to do and interactive areas.
A very busy cafe which catered well for all age groups. The food was tasty, hot and well presented. The staff friendly and approachable.
This museum has lots of history and you can tell a lot of work has gone into laying out the museum and the details of the artefacts etc. I did find that I got lost on some occasions and exhibits didn't really follow on from one another.

Didn't know what to expect but it was great. Lots to see without being too big, from ancient Egypt, the solar system, dinosaurs and living creatures. Has a... More
Fantastic day had by all, and best of all its free, so much to see and do will be making a return visit.
Manchester Museum is a great place to visit for 3-4 hours in a rainy day. You will find there so many interesting exhibits. I enjoyed so much the ancient world objects, mummies, Egyptian and Roman objects. Another great exhibition is the one with dinosaur skeletons and fossils.
