Dissecting Santa

Christmas Event


Join pathologist Dr Suzy Lishman for an exclusive event investigating the cause of death of one of the festive season’s larger-than-life characters. What polished him off? Too many mince pies, poisoned by The Grinch, trampled by the reindeer?

With the help of a live model and a set of specialised instruments, Suzy will explain what a post-mortem examination involves and what it can tell you about how lifestyle choices affect our health.

There won’t be a real dead body, any body parts or blood at this event, but it’s still not for the squeamish!

After helping Suzy determine the cause, recover with a themed cocktail and browse the galleries and get hands-on with our weird and wonderful collections.

£25 per person (includes live autopsy show, canapes and a cocktail, and exclusive access to the museum after hours)

Suitable for 12 years and above
