- OOTD: MOSI -

Thursday, January 09, 2014
Last weekend myself, my sister and my parents went to MOSI - the museum of science and industry in Manchester. I have been going since I was a small child but I haven't been a few years until now. It is so different but I would definitely recommend visiting this amazing museum. This is not a sponsored post. Here is my outfit of the day.

My jacket is my Forever21 (sale, a while ago), jeans are my trusty Dorothy Perkins Petite Skinny Jeans, my stripe breton top is a new buy from Missguided (£9.99), boots are from La Redoute and my bag is from the previous Asos sale. 

The main reason we went to the museum is because they had a exhibition called 'Brains' on - it ended on the 4th. Sadly you couldn't take any photographs in the Brains exhibit. As I have just graduated with a psychology degree I was really interested in going to see this exhibit. I wasn't disappointed! There was a large section on phrenology which I wasn't that interested in but then there was a model of Einstein's brain, a piece of William Burkes actual brain! (if you don't know who William Burke is, you need to look it up, he was a grave robber and murderer and along with William hare killed 16 people). There is a great movie about Burke and Hare with Simon Pegg in it, I love it! 

The 'brains' exhibit also had a piece from Gunter Von Hagens work (body works) which was a cross section of a human - an actual human, although as with all of his work the tissue etc is now plastic but it is still amazing to see in real life. I wanted to see the Body Works collection/exhibition when it came to Manchester a few years ago. Overall, it was a great exhibit!

We also went to the see the new 'ice labs' exhibition although for me personally it was a bit boring. Then we visited a section of the museum that I have visited so many times as a child - the 'underground manchester' area which is full of information about Manchester from viking opposition, roman occupation, engineering, sewers and so much more - there is a creepy dark tunnel with rats sounds that you have to walk through - I was terrified of this as a child! Finally we went to the air and space building which contains so many aeroplanes and working stream trains/engines.

There is my outfit and a bit about the museum of science and industry - if you are ever in Manchester, I would definitely recommend it. There is something for everyone with lots of new and different exhibits for children, teens and adults.
