Tips from locals
Museum that is next door to the University of Manchester. Free entry and hosts a lot of natural history.
From archeology and anthropology to earth sciences and entomology (that’s insects to you and me), the range of exhibits in the museum is mind-boggling.

One of my favourite museums in Manchester. It has dinosaurs & mummys! Something for everyone here and you can literally spend half a day here..and its FREE!
