Manchester Museum is a museum displaying works of archaeology, anthropology and natural history and is owned by the University of Manchester, in England. Sited on Oxford Road (A34) at the heart of the university’s group of neo-Gothic buildings, it provides access to about 4.5 million items from every continent. It is the UK’s largest university museum and serves both as a major visitor attraction and as a resource for academic research and teaching.
Highlights include a T. rex fossil, ancient Egyptian mummies and a vivarium that’s notable for its large collection of Costa Rican frogs. In total, the museum’s collection comprises more than four million items
Manchester Museum is closed to the public for the final stage of an ambitious £13.5 million transformation project, reopening in late 2022.
