Body in Action (ongoing)

Canterbury Museum

Body in Action opens at Canterbury Museum on Friday 18 April and promises to put your body to the test. Do you know that in one day your heart will pump all your blood around your body about 1000 times, or that every 30 days your body produces a totally new outer layer of skin? Body in Action at Canterbury Museum will explore how the body works from head to toe. Designed for children of all ages, Body in Action offers an amazing journey of discovery through the human body. The exhibition is full of highly interactive activities and amazing information on how the human body works. For example, children can venture through the giant human mouth and giant nose, have fun in the lungs and intestines, test their aerobic capabilities, explore how the brain works and learn about bones, blood, how we hear, taste and see plus much, much more. Toured by Te Manawa Museum of Art, Science and History, Body in Action opens at Canterbury Museum on Friday 18 April, entry is free; donations are appreciated. For more information see
