Family Mensa at the Manchester Museum, 27th January 2019

Join Stan the T-Rex, and Family Mensa, for a visit to one the the North West's crown jewels.

The Manchester Museum, Manchester, 12:30, Sunday 27th January 2019.

Boasting dinosaurs, antiquities, art, and nature, the Manchester Museum has something for everyone. From the T-Rex in the lobby, to the frogs in the halls, and the meteorites in the basement, this is a museum not to be missed.


As with all Family Mensa events, non-members accompanying a Mensan are very welcome - be they parents, grandparents, siblings or otherwise.

Entry is absolutely free, just meet at the main entrance at 12:30. I'll, as has become customary, be holding the Mensa logo on a white piece of paper.

Should you be joining us, I'd greatly appreciate an RSVP at james.o@mensanorthwest.com, to help anticipate numbers and ensure the whole group enters together.

Latecomers remain very welcome, just email me in advance at the above address, and I'll send you my mobile number so you can be united with the group.
