KIDS looking to be entertained this half term can find a variety of weird and wonderful museum attractions.
We’ve rounded up the best of the bunch to try next week.
Keeping the entire family entertained can be difficult during half term.
Museums are now adding more attractions and themed pop ups to be able to capture the attention of different children.
With some grosser than others, each kid will leave educated – and entertained.
Here are some of the weirdest and wackiest museum attractions around the world.
Smell dinosaur breath
In case you were ever wondering, you can now smell what dinosaur breath would have been like.
The Field Museum in Chicago have been able to reconstruct the entire life of a T-Rex, including how it smells.
The breath is created using a variety of elements such as decaying raw meat, although some were too strong and grotesque to be used in the final product.
Not only can you smell its breath, but you can also smell its poo – thought to be similar to a hyena.
Field Museum, Chicago, tickets start from £17.
Draw your own poo
On the theme of poo, you can also go to a poo museum.
The Japanese Unko museum lets you sit on a toilet, draw your own poo and even buy poo shaped snacks.
Thankfully the colourful attraction is less gross and more fun.
Unko Museum, Japan, tickets start from 900 yen (£6).
See disgusting food
Be prepared to be disgusted at the aptly named Disgusting Food Museum.
Located in Sweden, with pop ups in France and Las Vegas, the attraction features some of the most horrifying cuisine.
While some seem fairly normal – like liquorice for example – others are pretty grotesque such as maggot-infested cheese, Thai Durian fruit and fried bat.
Be aware – there is even a notice board which marks how many days the museum has gone without someone being sick.
Disgusting Food Museum, Sweden, tickets start from 150kr (£12).
Become prime minister
To adults, living the life of work, food shopping and travelling isn’t very exciting.
At Kidtropolis, they can work at a bank, become prime minister or own a business.
They can even run for office before picking up some groceries.
It is sponsored by Bank of America, where kids are given a “card” to use currency.
Children’s Museum of Houston, Houston, tickets start from $11 (£9).
See your own germs
Learn all about the germs on your body at Micropia museum in The Netherlands.
Kids can get their entire bodies scanned or even put their hand on a wall and see the germs that live on them.
Adults can learn about how microbes could be used for both plastic alternatives and how they are used with antibiotics.
Micropia, Amsterdam, tickets start from €12 (£10).
Learn about Bigfoot
Non-Bigfoot believers step away, as there is a whole museum dedicated to the mystery monster at the the Sasquatch Museum in Georgia.
Inside are testimonials, an eight-foot model remake as well as “footprints” made by the creature.
Some guests take it less seriously, signing their name in the guestbook as Bigfoot.
Others claim they are just “curious” to see if they can be convinced by the information and artefacts.
Sasquatch Museum, Georgia, tickets start from $6 (£4).
Wear astronaut suits
Kids can see what it’s like to go to space by trying on some of the best space gear at the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis.
Called Beyond Spaceship Earth, guests can even sit in pods and get strapped in to sleep against the wall as astronauts do.
It is supported by NASA so they will learn along the way.
Children’s Museum, Indianapolis, tickets start from $12.50 (£10).
Bizarre museums in the UK include an exhibition about poo and a shrine to pencils.
There are even stranger attractions abroad with one dedicated to David Hasslehoff.
Thankfully, many museums and attractions in Britain won’t cost you a penny – we’ve rounded up the free ones to add to your list during half-term.
