Clay Creations

Inspired by our exhibition Golden Mummies of Egypt

Every school holiday you’ll find creative hands-on family activities, inspired by the stories behind the objects and exhibitions in the museum.

During Half Term this week, Maggie McManus will be leading drop-in family friendly workshops where you can make clay portraits inspired by our stunning exhibition, Golden Mummies of Egypt.

You can help us care for our collections and bring joy and inspiration to people in Manchester and beyond

As one of the UK’s largest university museums, we care for over 4.5 million objects, with an internationally-important collection spanning from Archaeology to Zoology, and nearly everything in between. We work with communities, support university students and schools in Manchester and beyond and we are a free, inclusive museum for all. But we need your help. Every object we care for, exhibition, school visit and community event comes at a cost, and you can help make the museum as ambitious and impactful as possible.
