International Language Tours at Manchester Museum at Manchester Museum, Manchester, 10 January–1 July 2019, free entry - Visit now

Delve deeper into the collection at Manchester Museum in either Mandarin, Spanish or Italian. In addition to the usual comprehensive tours in English, these new multilingual tours are becoming a regular activity. From January an Italian tour will run on every 4th Wednesday of the month, Spanish every 3rd Thursday and Mandarin every 2nd Thursday. Allowing visitors to explore the Museum’s fascinating collection in more than just the English language. Be sure to check the Eventbright page for exact dates and times and to book a place.

Nestled into the University of Manchester along the stretch of Oxford Road now known as the cultural corridor. The Manchester Museum is an animated institution full of new ideas and a curiosity for life on earth. Having started in the 1820s and gone through several transitions, moving between buildings and evolving to accommodate its growing collection, it is now a hub of academic research and learning for all ages. With exhibitions ranging from Botany and Egyptology to the infamous T-Rex and live specimens found in the Aquarium and Vivarium. There are plenty of intriguing artefacts, stories and frogs to explore on this tour. You will be guided, by a native speaker in your chosen language, through each gallery picking out the highlights from each area. It is a brilliant way to get an overview of the Museum’s exhibits which you can then go back to explore in more depth. For someone who isn’t necessarily a Museum attendee having a more personal explanation of an exhibit can make the whole experience more exciting and accessible especially if you can then ask questions in your first language. As well as the tours, Manchester Museum runs an extensive and varied programme of events throughout the year which you can discover more about on their website. In addition the Museum also welcomes visitors free of charge, seven days a week.
