Manchester Museum is located by the Victoria University of Manchester on Oxford road, and is known primarily for its Archeological and Historical Artifacts.  In fact, there’s a special exhibit that greets you at the entrance – his name is Rex.

As part of the artifacts, you will come across the Egyptology exhibits – The Victoria Museum is known for its Mummies

One of these artefacts actually came down the road from Salford and is still known as the Salford Mummy to this day, so its nice to pay her a visit!

Salford Museum is the Home of Lark Hill Place, a Victorian Street that shows how people lived during that time – there’s the old cobbles and washing lines, and you’ll hear the sounds of the Grocers, the Blacksmith and the chemists
