THE origins of THE MANCIIESTER MUSEUM lie in the collection of l:he Manchester manufacturer and collector ]ohn Leigh Philips. After his death in 1814, a small g'oup of wealthy men banded together to buy his ‘cabinet’, and in 1821 they set up the Manchester Natural History Society in Peter Street. The collections continued to grow as members and others donated objects from around lhe world. The museun was transferred in 1868 to Owens College, which later becane lhe University of Manchester.

The College asked Alfred Waterhouse to design a museum building, which was opened in 1890. In 1997 lhe Museum was awarded a £12.5 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and this, with money from the European Regional Development Fund, the Uriversity of Manchester, the Wellcome Trust, the Wolfson Foundation and other sponsors has enabled the Museum to undertake further expansion.
