You have an amazing brain, in fact everybody does! But how does it make sense of the world around you?

Your Amazing Brain: A User’s Guide is a new exhibition from Banbury Museum and Gallery that is going to show you just how amazing our brains really are. From emotions to our senses, you will find out how your brain interprets what it sees, hears, smells, and feels. This family friendly exhibition will take you on a journey inside your brain, to find out just what makes you, you!

With over 15 interactive puzzles and ‘mind bending illusions’ we will show you how your brain can play tricks on you! Get ready for some ‘WOW’ moments that might leave you questioning what you thought you knew.

With hands on activities that all the family can take part in, this exhibition will appeal to young and old alike. But don’t worry, you don’t need to go it alone! We have enlisted some help, our two ‘Amazing Brain’ guides, who will join you in your journey through the brain.

So, keep your eyes peeled for Brian, he has all the clues and is going to tell you everything you need to know! And for our younger visitors, Custard, the bird will show you fun extra activities to do along the way.

You might not think science is for you, but we are going to show you it is for everyone!
