May half term

Dive into the incredible and gloriously gross world of our brilliant bodies with a May Half Term of family fun inspired by our world-premiere exhibition Operation Ouch! Food, Poo and You

Bring a bear (or any soft squishy friend) and take them round the departments of our Teddy Hospital. Help them look after their brains, bones and bottoms with fun and fascinating activities across the museum. Find out how your skeleton works, what your poo is made of and why we have blood. Discover how our bodies work while learning how to take care of them.

Our expert Explainers will be back with an interactive science show packed with fun facts and wow moments exploring how and why our bodies are all the same, but different too.

Add a ticket to explore blockbuster exhibition, Operation Ouch! Food, Poo and You, which brings the hit BBC children's TV series to life. Dive headfirst into the digestive system for an unforgettable journey of super-sized science and discover where our food goes when we eat.

Power Up—the ultimate gaming experience—will be open daily during half term. Play the very best video games from the past five decades, get moving with a variety of physical games like Wii Sports or try out the latest virtual reality. Book an annual pass and get unlimited access to Power Up in Manchester for a whole year for just £15.

Enjoy family favourites in our free permanent galleries and displays. Discover your body's superpower in Experiment, our interactive gallery for all. Journey through Manchester's rich legacy of world changing ideas in Revolution Manchester and pick up a free activity trail in the Textiles Gallery to explore with fun games and challenges.
