Love Fossils? – We need your help!


If you love fossils and want to help us unlock the treasures of Manchester Museum’s fossil collection, this is your chance to make a real difference. This Valentine’s day, we are inviting people to unlock the treasures at the heart of the museum through our exciting new online project Reading Nature’s Library.



Reading Nature’s Library has been developed to reveal information about the museum’s amazing objects to help discover more about our world. The project is part of Zooniverse an online home for interesting projects looking for volunteer help. With over 4.5 million objects in the museum’s collection, recording this information is too great a task for us to tackle alone. The first few thousand objects have been photographed and we want your help to read the labels and record the names, places and other information.
