Around since 1821, the Manchester Museum has about six million items for perusal, focusing on botany, zoology, Egyptology, palaeontolog, and live specimens.

Handily a 15-minute walk from the city centre, the museum is part of the University of Manchester, so there are plenty of restaurants and pubs to choose from nearby. For cyclists, there is a secure bike park on nearby Coupland Street, while buses 15, 41, 42, 43, 140–143 and 147 all stop at close by. There is paid car parking on Booth Street West.
