After hours at the Manchester Museum

After Hours offers a unique, and free, opportunity for adults to enjoy a fusion of Victorian and contemporary photography, gramophone music, photography experts and Museum objects.

As an added bonus, visitors will be able to bring their owns cameras and will be able to take still-life photos of Museum objects not normally on display. There will also be the chance to hook up to a rescued Victorian camera and try out your skills.

The event is part of the Museum's exhibition We are extInked , open until 4 December, documenting the arts and ecology project, extInked, for which drawings of endangered British species were tattooed onto 100 willing volunteers, turning them into living, breathing ambassadors for their chosen species.

There will also be a chance to relax and have a drink from the bar in the calm surroundings of the city’s oldest museum.

Nick Merriman said “We’re delighted to open our doors for this regular programme of after hours events on Saturday evenings, when people can expect the unexpected and discover some of the museum’s hidden treasures. Adults will be able to have a more in depth, leisurely look at our exhibitions and permanent collections in a relaxed atmosphere.”
