New Living Worlds Gallery open!

I’m delighted to say the Living Worlds Gallery here at The Manchester Museum is now open to the public!

We had an amazing launch party last night with Deadly 60’s Steve Backshall on hand to help open the gallery.

We have tried to do something very different in the new gallery, which hopefully you will all love. In contrast to the old mammals gallery we have put people and the amazing world around us at the heart of the gallery.

There is a great review of the gallery on David Quinn’s blog

A really exciting development is the smart phone app (search for ‘Living Worlds’ in your app store). This gives you a range of extra information about the amazing story lines, interviews with people who care passionately about nature and information about what to do next.

I’ll be doing more blog posts after Easter on my gallery highlights and some of the stunning new geology on display for the first time.

There are more images on our Flickr set.
