One of Manchester’s most unique and beautiful commercial events, wedding and private hire venues,

Venue Hire

If you are looking for a unique venue then we do not disappoint. Why not dine with the dinosaurs in our Fossils Gallery or amongst the animals in the atmospheric Victorian Living Worlds Gallery?

Our wedding service is the most unique and memorable in Manchester, after all where else is the service conducted with a T-Rex looking on over the registrars shoulder!

We’re still able to take booking for events on our galleries at night however due to our capital development our Kanaris theatre and conference room are unavailable to early 2021.

Amongst the extra`s on offer are tours of the Museum and animal handling sessions for that something different.

At Manchester Museum we can provide the perfect venue for your:
Drinks Reception
Fashion Show
Birthday or Retirement Party
Product Launch

With the highly praised Chancellors Collection providing the catering, we can create an event to meet any of your requirements.
