Manchester Museum has begun an exciting period of change

hello future is a major project to develop and transform the museum to bring more wonder and inspiration from around the world to visitors.

During the work you can still visit our beautiful natural history galleries to see the live animals in the Vivarium, the dinosaurs in the Fossils gallery, and thousands of animals and plants from around the world in Nature’s Library, Living Worlds and our under 5s space, Nature Discovery.

Until the work is completed in 2021, some of our galleries - Money, Ancient Worlds, and Living Cultures – have been temporarily closed, and some of our programmes and facilities for schools have been affected. Find out what this means for your students below and in our FAQ section.

There are still plenty of opportunities for schools to work with us and to help us test new ideas and programmes during our part-closure. Please sign-up to the Secondary and Post-16 or the Early Years and Primary e-newsletters to be the first to find out.
