The children's museum Eureka in Halifax has opened its doors to a brand new £2.9 million exhibition.

The "All About ME" gallery explores the workings of the human body. Before the public are able to see it, a very special team of experts - schoolchildren from the town - were on hand to make sure everything was up to scratch. .

The new exhibition has been three years in the planning and it was met with approval from the "experts".

It's the largest single investment since Eureka opened 21 years ago. Joining in the children's taster day, the museum's ambassador and paralypmic gold medallist Hannah Cockcroft.

She said: "We worked out the museum was opened on the month and year that I was born. So I have grown up with it. November 1992. I came here on school trips and had fun memories here so it is nice to come back and see what they have done with it."

This galley's predecessor "Me and My Body" lasted twenty-years and has been enjoyed by six-million children and their families so we are hoping this one will have a similar lifespan.

The new exhibition devised by a team of medical experts aims to education children about the human body. The secret is they are having so much fun - they don't even notice.
