Home Educating Families’ Afternoon at Manchester Museum, Thursday 6 December 2018: Investigating Nature

5/11/18: THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL. We received many more enquiries than expected for this event! If you have submitted an enquiry form we will be in touch before the end of November to confirm your place or whether we’ll need to add you to a wait list.

Please follow us on twitter @MM_Connects for details of the next event.


Explore the museum collections, meet experts, get your hands on real museum specimens and have fun with other families in this unique environment.


This is a pilot event as part of our HLF-funded ‘hello future’ building and redevelopment project, based on consultation with home educating families. The event will explore themes of extinction, adaptation and how we can all protect the natural world.

Activities will include:

– Object handling
– Curator Q&A
– Hands on activities
– Under 5s sensory play

Suitable for all ages. Sign in and registration 1-1.30pm. Activities until 4pm. Booking in advance by 29 November 2018 via this link is essential. Places are limited and the link will go down once we’re full!

As this is a pilot event, we are able to offer it *free of charge* in return for your comments and feedback, to help shape our future programmes.

Please note that adults will remain in supervisory capacity at all times for the children that they bring, and children must not be left unaccompanied; museum staff and volunteers are facilitators only.
