Regardless of whether your main reason to visit the Isle of Man is to enjoy countryside walks, hire a bike and explore, or even to watch the exciting annual TT races, no visit to the Isle of Man is complete without a trip to the Manx Museum in Douglas.
With a wide range of artefacts, treasures and shows, the Manx Museum presents the island's 10,000 year history and is the perfect starting point to any visit to the island.
As well as offering free entry, the museum holds the national art gallery, a Viking gallery displaying gold and silver relics, the national library and archive, and details of every facet of Manx history and life.
Open Monday to Saturday all year round it really sets the mood for any Manx holiday as well as being perfectly located in Douglas for a visit to Laxey on the electric railway or the south of the island on the steam railway.
Further information can be found on the Manx National Heritage website.
