About

From the wonders of our natural world to road racing legends, there is something for everyone as you begin your journey through the Island’s vibrant history and its unique national collections.

The museum is bursting with artifacts and treasures unique to the Isle of Man, including hoards of Viking silver and relics from all over the Island in an intriguing Viking Gallery that immerses you in the Island's rich Viking and Celtic heritage. 

Travel through the Island’s 10,000 year history as it is presented through film, galleries and interactive displays, and discover how the Island changed from being the centre of the Celtic Kingdom of Mann and the Isles to a Victorian holiday destination.

Visit tew theatre and entertainment themed interactive gallery 'Theatreland'. Put on your own pantomime, tap dance triumphantly and impress your friends and family with your showbiz skills. A family friendly gallery for all ages to enjoy.

Explore the national art collection or delve into the National Library & Archive. See the Manx Museum's latest exhibition and find Island inspired gifts and souvenirs in the flagship Gallery Shop.
