During the long Easter weekend as well as scalping the lawn and repainting the kitchen ceiling, it’s nice to go out and do something a bit different with the family. We’re big supporters of MOSI and got a bit cross when they talked about closing it; now we go as often as we can. The boy loves trains, we love the boy and we all love MOSI.
This Easter they’re putting on a bit of an event as part of their current exhibition, Power: From Muscle to Machine – which runs from April 5-27, which tells the story of power and how it has been created, harnessed and used over time.
From water to steam, gas to diesel and electricity – experience the sights, thundering sounds and gut-busting smells of the Museum’s 19th Century engines and machinery as they burst into life through a series of hands-on demonstrations, workshops, events, games and shows for all the family. If MOSI do anything well it’s hands-on, interactive fun for the kids!
Over the Easter weekend and to compliment their Power Programme, Strong Man John Evans will be at MOSI. John can carry up to 20 stones in weight on his head. We’re invited to come and marvel at his incredible display of strength and the power that predates our steam engines, who would win, man or machine? The man can balance a Mini on his head so I think I know where I’ll be putting my money!
If you fancy a fun and free trip out and you live in Manchester then you can’t go far wrong with MOSI. Find out more about their Power programme, visit their website, and I might see you down there. Just no balancing vehicles on your head.
