Continuing to INSPIRE

Last week Manchester Museum closed its doors and will remain closed until late 2022. It’s a major development for us but we will open with a larger, more inspirational, and even more inclusive museum than ever.

We are all working hard behind the scenes to ensure this will be the case, and non more so that our Director, Esme Ward, who’s commitment is our inspiration.

We continued to deliver our live public outputs right up to point when our doors closed last week, with external visits to local children including a visit with the live animals to Chorley’s INSPIRE Youth Group (below).

Don’t worry you can still follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with all the latest developments whist we are closed, and of course here on the frogblog. Our Manchester Museum From Home is also a great place to continue exploring our collections and learning about all our museum objects – and if you would like to visit the Vivarium you can still do so Virtually Here.

Whilst the Vivarium is closed we will be ensuring the animals are well kept and also working on the new Harlequin Toad exhibit, which will be our main exhibit when we re-open and be officially launched by the Ambassador of Panama in 2022. It will be a most stunning exhibit and a full naturalistic replica of the species’ natural habitat in the Santa Fe National Park. This state of the art exhibit will also feature specimen plants and other rare animals from this unusual tropical environment and be the only place in the world outside Panama you will be able to see the unique harlequin frogs that live there.

I promise, it’ll be worth the wait.
