    What a great museum! The wildlife section on the first floor is really interesting. I loved the Egyptian section, not very big but what they do have is very good. And the massive T.Rex is amazing.

    Warriors of the Plains: 200 years of Native North American Honour & Ritual which opens on Saturday. The exhibition brings to life the world of Native North American warfare.

    Come inside the Manchester Museum for the Dinosaurs (and say hello to Rex! :)) but don't forget to check out a perfect place to see a lot of Mummy's (Egyptian - that is)

    To get the best pictures of the museum's attractions, come on weekday mornings. Less people means no annoying strangers getting in the way of your camera.
