1/8 Manchester Museum

Home to the strange Tigon (cross between a tiger and lion, stuffed, of course), stunning dinosaur skeletons, Egyptian Mummies and local archaeological discoveries, a day at brilliant Manchester Museum is great fun for kids of all ages. It’s also the only museum in the UK with a Vivarium, so young visitors can see all sorts of live reptiles, come eye-to-eye with the oddest creatures and find out how much fun conservation really is – they can even sponsor their very own frog

Where: Manchester University, 20 minutes’ walk from Manchester city centre

When: 7 days 10am to 5pm
