Nature and Nurture

Cost: Free

Come and share the things you care about in our world and for our planet and explore the Museum with your peers. These weekly drop ins are a chance to meet other students, socialise, talk about what matters to you, and explore the museum. You will also be able to get involved in co-curating museum events, resources and projects with and for your peers, focusing on nature, wellbeing and environmental action. Come to one, a couple or all of them; each session will be distinctive with different activities, spaces to explore and interdisciplinary conversations.

Wednesdays during UoM term time, 3-5pm

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.
