This May, the Science and Industry Museum offers budding biologists the opportunity to meet Dr Chris and Dr Ronx, two of the hosts of BBC Children’s series Operation Ouch!, as part of a visit to the blockbuster exhibition which brings the hit show to life.

Operation Ouch! Food, Poo and You invites visitors on a gleefully gross journey through the human digestive system, during which they can learn about some of our funniest bodily functions through a range of interactive activities and challenges.

Brilliant Bodies Month

These star appearances come as part of the Science and Industry Museum’s Brilliant Bodies month —four weeks of anatomy-themed special activities all inspired by the exhibition which will close on Sun 9 Jun. The month-long bodies bonanza will culminate in a medical May half term (Sat 25 May – Sun 2 Jun), where visitors can bring their cuddly friends to the museum as it transforms into a teddy bear hospital.

Find out more about the Science and Industry Museum’s May programme here, and book your visit via the website.
