2011 is shaping up to be a very exciting year for The Manchester Museum with a number of gallery changes in the pipeline. The new Living Planet gallery will open this year and work will begin on the new Ancient Worlds gallery.
With so many changes taking place it’s interesting to see just how different galleries were several decades ago. For your delectation I’ve uploaded some black and white photographs of how the then ethnology gallery used to look many moons ago!
