Make fake poo, sick, blood, snot and wee!
Think snot is gross and unnecessary? Not sure of the purpose of poo? Baffled by wee and why it changes colour? Don't worry, we're here to help! We'll explain the purpose of all these things and their importance to a healthy body in these fun hands-on workshops.
Don't forget that if you already have an annual ticket you will get in for free!

October Half Term: Eye Dissection Workshops
23rd - 27th October
11am - 3pm
Discover the fascinating organ that is the eye in these hands-on workshops.
Dissect an eye* to understand how the lens, cornea, iris, optic nerve and retina work together to create the images we see. Learn about the blind spot, vitreous and aqueous humor, why we blink, the purpose of tears and how to look after your eyes.
Normal museum admission charges apply, but don't forget that if you already have an annual ticket, then admission to the museum is free and you will only need to pay for the workshop!
Workshops will take place at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
There is a small charge of £3 per eye payable on the door.
Children must be supervised and we will issue one eye and one scalpel per supervising adult. We ask that adults supervise no more than 3 children.
To offer a calmer environment, audio in the ground floor galleries is turned down between 9.30am - 11am on the first Sunday of every month.
