The recently refurbished Manchester Museum is situated on the campus of Manchester University. Covering everything from archaeology to zoology, it is a fascinating place to spend a day. On the first floor, the Explorers and Encounters Gallery gives visitors the opportunity to examine intricate bead work from North America and Africa, and meditate next to a Burmese Buddha. You can also wander through the famous Egyptology galleries, where a pyramid workman's village and a royal residence town are all on display. Admission is free.
