A trip to Manchester

The other week I took a trip to Manchester to take a look at some museums for my holiday homework.
First we went to the Whitworth Art Gallery

And then we went to the Manchester museum


"In Japanese culture there is a legend that anyone who folds 1,000 paper cranes will be granted their wish.

Sadako Sasaki was two years old when she was a victim of the Hiroshima bomb, in 1945. She developed leukaemia, probably as a result of the bomb, and died in 1955. Sadako folded 1000 Origami paper cranes before she died because of the legend about wishes being granted.

There is a book about Sadako's story called 'Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes'.

Paper cranes are an international symbol of peace."

After that we went to MOSI - Museum Of Science & Industry and took a look at the Textiles Gallery

This is a jacket made of dandelion seeds ( or fairies as I know them) probably the most delicate thing I've ever seen!

Finally we went to the Air & Space gallery

Really wanted to go on the simulator! :(
Thanks for reading!
Will you be folding a thousand paper cranes??
