Easter is just around the corner, and there’s no better time to explore all that Manchester’s knowledge quarter has to offer. Whether you’re looking for fun activities for the whole family or an interesting day out, there’s something for everyone in this vibrant part of the city.

Golden Mummies of Egypt is the blockbuster exhibition on display in Manchester Museum’s brand-new exhibition hall, the star of the museum’s £13.5 million transformation. Whether you’ve visited the Mummues yet or not, we highly recommend a visit to Manchester Museum if only to check out the new Variable Harlequin frog exhibit and make a special visit on the 12th of April to celebrate International Mother Language Day.

Z-arts on Stretford is a unique arts centre aiming to share the joy of imagination, storytelling and creativity with children and families. As you’d expect, a lot is going on over Easter, including a couple of children’s theatre shows and the extension of their popular family exhibition, Fairy Tales.

The Easter holidays are a good opportunity to take in some heritage, and events at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House and The Pankhurst are an excellent way to introduce children to Manchester’s feminist and literary roots.

Oxford Road has everything from Easter egg hunts to cultural events and delicious dining options. This family-friendly Easter holidays guide is here to inspire you to explore the knowledge quarter. So grab your bunny ears, hop on over, and let’s get started!
