Manx National HeritageAcronym: MNH
Manx National Heritage looks after some of the Isle of Man’s most special places, spaces and collections, including historic buildings, landscapes, archives and the Island’s national museum collections, including art, social history, archaeology, natural history, making these available to a worldwide audience. Our professional team also advise on developments and changes in our historic environment and natural landscape, helping ensure the Isle of Man remains a special place for people, heritage and nature for generations to come. It acts as a guardian of the Island's many natural and cultural assets and looks after 3,000 acres of land on behalf of the community, including the Calf of Man Bird Observatory and nature reserve.
The Manx Museum and National Trust was originally set up in the 19th century by the Isle of Man’s Parliament, Tynwald, to look after the Islands archaeological sites. The organisation is supported by the Isle of Man Government and Trustees are appointed by Tynwald. On a day to day basis the Trust operates at ‘arms length’ but has close relationships with Government Departments, in particularly with the Department of Economic Development. The Trust also has charitable status and works closely with other voluntary sector bodies such as the Manx Wildlife Trust.
