John Rylands Library review Rate it

Despite giving the impression of near-medieval antiquity, this glorious building is in fact just over a century old, having first opened in 1900. Among its astonishing treasures is the world's oldest surviving fragment of the New Testament. Hands-on activities, touch-screen digital displays and a changing programme of exhibitions all bring artefacts to life, while the guided tours are highly recommended.
