Manchester Museum, part of the University of Manchester, reopened on 18 February 2023 after an ambitious £15 million transformation with a mission to be more inclusive, caring and imaginative. The Museum welcomed over 50,000 visitors in the first week of opening.
The Museum has launched an exciting new programme of ‘Museum Lates’ on Wednesdays and on 15 March, the museum will stay open to 9pm and host ‘Student Social: Golden Night at the Museum’.
This event starts at 6pm and will be a golden opportunity for students to meet other students and explore the museum after hours.
The stunning Golden Mummies of Egypt exhibition feature hundreds of glittering gold objects and offers unparalleled access to the museum’s world-class Egypt and Sudan collections. Manchester is the only place in the UK to see this stunning show.
There will also be an illuminating performance in the new South Asia Gallery performance space 7-8pm by Indian musicians Vishnu R and Deepikaa Sreenivasan who are involved with the Rhythm Xchange Festival (17 & 18 March), which is also hosted by Manchester Museum.
Throughout the event, students will be able to encounter golden objects close-up and across the different galleries, including in the new South Asia Gallery and Chinese Culture Gallery, and find out about student opportunities at the Museum.
