We want to support educators to make the very most of a museum visit.

Visits, resources and activities

British Science Week

Manchester Museum, in partnership with the Museum of Medicine and Health (part of the University of Manchester’s Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health), will be hosting a science fair on 14 and 15 March.

Across the museum, you will find up to 40 stalls where you will encounter some of the latest research taking place across the University of Manchester. Your students will have the opportunity to find out about ground-breaking research from the researchers themselves, interact with science experiments, and get careers advice and inspiration from practicing scientists.

Plan your visit

Some handy hints

During term time, Manchester Museum gets quite busy between 10.30am and 2pm, and also during school holidays. You may find it more comfortable to visit outside of these times

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.
