Many of the objects held by Greater Manchester museums were entrusted to them by generous local benefactors and philanthropists.

In this section learn about the philanthropists themselves and explore the objects and artefacts they donated, ranging from ancient Egyptian fragments, architectural models to rare natural history specimens.
