Global Explorer – Travel the world without leaving Manchester

August 1, 2014

Welcome to Global Explorer. This summer various activities are being held at the Manchester Museum where families can travel the world without leaving Manchester.

Families can create their very own explorer kit, including binoculars or telescopes and explorer hats, before exploring the museum galleries to see what they might discover.

Ancient Worlds has been the theme for the first two weeks, and families have been making ancient worlds treasures from canopic jars, to ancient Egyptian amulets or scarab beetles and many more from junk model materials.

In the coming weeks we’ll be making Sealife and Animal Kingdom creations from junk model materials inspired by the museum’s collections.

What did the parents and children say about the event?

“Today was the first time I found a place that both I and my kids wanted to return”

“Fantastic! kids had great fun. Thankyou”

“When I get home I am going to tell my mummy I enjoyed it”

Parents and children have been creating marvellous creations. So, if you and your family are looking for something to do this summer, visit Global Explorer at the Manchester Museum.

Later today #Global Explorer will be launching a digital game – check out facebook to find out how to play.
