DOCTOR Who's Tardis has travelled millions of miles through the universe but it will land next at a primary school in Greater Manchester.
The police box has been the centrepiece of the Doctor Who Up-Close exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry.
Now primary schools have a chance to win the time-travel machine in a competition launched by the Castlefield museum.
Museum boss Tony Hill said: "The Doctor Who Up-Close was phenomenally popular with children and the Tardis was one of our most photographed objects. We thought it would be a great idea if one primary school class could have the opportunity to bring the Tardis to their own school grounds."
Youngsters must submit a classroom project on a significant historic figure from Manchester's past complete with children's drawings and interpretive text.
The closing date for the MOSI Time Traveller competition is February 15 and entries should be sent on A1 paper or smaller to Sarah Roe, Museum of Science and Industry, Liverpool Road, Castlefield, Manchester M3 4FP.
