Manchester Museum's MummiesDiscover the wonders of Ancient Egypt in Manchester
Manchester University's famous museum boasts thousands of fascinating objects sourced from around the world. But none capture the imagination like the 24 Egyptian mummies housed here. Displayed in a specially-built gallery, the mummies, including the two famous brothers from the Middle Kingdom, fascinate visitors of all ages. And if you’re really lucky, you might get to explore the collection after-hours; though be warned, one of the mummies is said to move in the middle of the night.
