Freebies!

Update 20 November – items are now all reserved, thanks for checking in!

You’ll have heard by now that Manchester Museum is embarking on a huge HLF-supported building and redevelopment project known as hello futureExcitingly, contractors have started some enabling works on-site, which you can follow via our project blog and twitter.

This means we’ve taken the opportunity for a HUGE clear-out of resources collected over a hundred years of Learning Programmes at the Museum.

We’ve got some stuff that we know we won’t be using during our reduced on-site programme during part-closure, and wanted to give local schools the opportunity to get their hands on some *free* learning resources!

Take a look below, and if you’d like to collect anything between 19 and 23 November, please email amy.mcdowall@manchester.ac.uk. First come, first served!

All in a Twitter!

You might have noticed some changes to our Twitter account recently.

twitter feb 2018

“McrMuseum” Learning (@LearningMM) is now “Manchester Museum Learning & Engagement” (@MM_Connects).

A small change, you might think! But for us its the first of many changes that will be happening at Manchester Museum in the next few years.

Reflecting our ongoing plans for the exciting Courtyard Project building and development work, our Learning and Engagement teams will be working much more closely together in the future. ‘Birds of a feather’, you might say …

We’re really excited for the collaborative opportunities that our ambition to become a “Museum for Life” will afford.

But what will schools crossed with volunteering crossed with communities crossed with families crossed with adult events look like?

Don’t settle for a bird’s eye view! Follow our blogs and Twitter to follow our journey to get involved.
