Manchester Museum is closed for redevelopment.
We are currently undergoing an ambitious £15 million transformation, called hello future, and we will reopen to the public in February 2023. Keep an eye on our social media channels for behind-the-scenes content and regular updates:
Please note that our Collections Search is undergoing urgent and essential maintenance and we are assessing how long this will take. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
You can still access the Collection Search from University campus and if you have VPN access. If not, we will try to provide collections information when it is urgently needed. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org a member of our curatorial team with your enquiry. Selected data is also available either through Herbaria@Home or GBIF which may assist with your enquiry.
Our staff are working hard to deliver hello future, therefore, enquiries may take longer than usual to respond to (please allow at least 20 working days).
We are working on a new Collections Search that will provide a substantially improved user experience and this will be available in time for the 2023/24 academic year. We’re also creating a new research studio and associated displays, and improved lecture and seminar spaces.
Thanks for your patience during this time.
