Fodor's Expert Review Manchester Museum

Manchester Museum/Gallery
Free Fodor's Choice
Run by the University of Manchester and located in a superb Gothic Revival building with modern add-ons, this museum is currently undergoing a £13½ million transformation that will culminate in a new South Asia gallery, a Chinese culture gallery, and the world's first center for age-friendly culture. Embracing anthropology, natural history, and archaeology, it features one of the U.K.'s largest ancient Egyptian collections as part of the extensive Ancient Worlds galleries, a beautiful Living Worlds gallery designed to raise questions about our attitude towards nature, and a vivarium complete with live frogs and other amphibians and reptiles. A lively events program for all ages helps lure in repeat visitors.
