The Station Building has displays on the history of photography, gas and the railway. The Making of Manchester Gallery is included here and tells the story of the city from Roman times (the museum is built within a few minutes walk of the ruins of Mamucium Roman fort which are freely accessible) up until the present day which is represented by a traffic light damaged in the IRA bomb. Finally, the basement of the Station Building hosts the Underground Manchester Gallery – a perennial favourite with kids. Although the story of sanitation may not sound that interesting, getting to tour a Victorian sewer complete with appropriate sights (and smells – yuck) and take a look at the history of toilets appeals to the potty humour of most school age children.

I don’t know about you, but we’re pretty excited about seeing Brave when it opens this weekend, and I’ve really enjoyed seeing Jim MacQuarrie’s series of posts about the making of the movie. I’ve always loved animation and I’m a huge fan of Pixar — that, combined with my ongoing quest for strong female protagonists makes Brave a great fit. I got a book and a few apps related to the movie and I just couldn’t wait, so I’ve already started delving into them. Here’s a quick look at a few more ways for you and your kids to immerse yourself in the world of Brave, though I recommend waiting until you’ve seen the movie. There is one significant plot point which, contrary to common Hollywood practice, is not revealed in the movie trailer but will be seen in the book and the storybook apps. (Note: my reviews here will be spoiler-free.)

It’s ridiculous.”

Snapchat is where we can really be ourselves while being attached to our social identity. Without the constant social pressure of a follower count or Facebook friends, I am not constantly having these random people shoved in front of me. Instead, Snapchat is a somewhat intimate network of friends who I don’t care if they see me at a party having fun.
