Description

Manchester is a major city in the northwest of England with a rich industrial heritage. The Castlefield conservation area’s 18th-century canal system recalls the city’s days as a textile powerhouse, and visitors can trace this history at the interactive Museum of Science & Industry. Known throughout the world as the birthplace of the industrial revolution, Manchester has a proud history in science, politics, music, arts and sport. Discover the city’s heritage and how it has grown to be the progressive hub it is today.

Manchester Museum is a museum displaying works of archaeology, anthropology and natural history and is owned by the University of Manchester. From Darwin to Turing, from natural history and the environment to technology and the environment, via objects as remarkable as dinosaur skeletons and mummies from Ancient Egypt: the collection spans millennia and over four million objects.
