Operation Ouch! Eye Dissection

See real science in action with this live dissection exploring how the eye works.

Our expert will conduct a live dissection of an animal’s eye, and a big screen will give you clear, close-up views. If you’re up for it then you won’t want to miss this fantastic opportunity to inspect the eye in all its glory.


This is a free event, but booking is required.

This event involves the dissection of a sheep’s eye and the use of a large-scale screen to show the dissection. Due to its content, the event is suitable for ages 7+. If you wish to bring under-7s to the event, you do so at your own discretion.

Anyone wishing to leave the room before or during the dissection will be able to do so, but please do not leave children unaccompanied. You will not be able to touch or handle any part of the eye.
