Coming Soon; Eyewitness Project Books

17 Mar

Eyewitness Egypt

The Shop Elves at Manchester Museum are always looking for ways to help parents carry on the learning experience at home after they visit our lovely galleries.

We are please to say that they have come up trumps with a new range from Dorling Kindersley making its début in the shop this week.

Eyewitness Project books are a range of bright curriculum-based activity books suitable for ages 8-12. They contain fun facts, ideas for things to do, parent notes and (the elves favourite) reward stickers that chart and encourage learning.

The current range includes Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, Dinosaurs, Prehistoric Life and Rocks and Minerals.

We expect these to be very popular, so please call the Shop on 0161 275 2642 to enquire about availability.

School Groups & Goodie Bags.

“But Miss, a badger really did eat my homework…”

Coming to the Museum to learn stuff?

Pushed for time and won’t get to visit our wonderful (even if we do say so ourselves) shop?

 Considered a goodie bag?

We hope that during your visit to Manchester Museum you will have time to visit our lovely shop. All proceeds from sales go directly back to the Museum, which lets us continue offering an awesome experience for students of all ages.

 However, if you do not have time during your visit we offer themed goodie bags by price point. These are ordered in advance, can be tailored to your visit and offer great value for money. Just call us on 0161 275 2642 and we can get you sorted.

Needless to say, the bags are also good for children’s parties and schools unable to make it to our Museum.

P.S. Our marvelous education team also have a blog, go visit them at http://learningmanchester.wordpress.com/
