Common objet d'arts
A motley collection of curios, gadgets and trinkets are brought to life through multimedia technology as part of Everyday Relics, a new exhibition that examines common objects to discover the city's history.

I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan of the MOSI because I've personally been to better. That said, it's a great, free site, for families to enjoy.

You could argue the title of this exhibition is an oxymoron, but that's the point: the ancient pieces were once considered rather standard objects which may be used every day, but their age makes them fascinating pieces. Visitors are permitted to handle the items, but mostly learn about the industrial city of Manchester.

Some objects may seem mundane like the wooden framed clock, and the dial tone telephone, but the exhibition sheds light on the rich culture of this Northern city in the UK – it's not only the capital who has its own quirks after all.

Find kitsch, vintage, and downright decrepit pieces, which have been kept in mint condition, for the viewing, and handling, pleasure, of visitors. It is interesting to see the way we lived.
