The Museum of Mystery, a brand new interactive web resource finally launches on Saturday 7th May!! It is aimed at students aged 7-16  and has been created by the Manchester Museum and a web development company called iflourish.  It accompanies our new Living Worlds gallery that has recently been opened and focuses on some of the themes that are found within the gallery.

The website uses the museum’s collection and expertise from our staff as a source of information for solving tasks and completing mysteries.   The activities support many aspects of the science national curriculum for KS2, 3 and 4.  The Museum of Mystery encourages students to build a case file, using the evidence provided to broaden their awareness and interest in the natural world.
