Our regular programme of workshops might be off for now, but there’s still loads to see and do at Manchester Museum.

Self-led visit

A self-led visit means you can get creative and plan to meet your particular pupils’ learning needs. It’s free of charge, and we’ll be here every step of your planning process to make things easier. Lunch and coat storage spaces are available until 13 July 2018.

You can check our FAQs for the latest information on gallery openings and closures.

Please remember to book your self-led visit in advance so we can ensure your visit runs smoothly.
