The Manitoba Museum is making it easier on parents this spring break to occupy their kids’ time. The museum recently introduced the new Ancient Seas display (right), which has been a huge hit since its debut last week, and is also featuring a new Planetarium show.

The museum is also promoting Shocking Science demonstrations at 1:15, 2:15 and 3:15 p.m. daily, which it says revolves around torturing pickles. “We have reports that The Manitoba Museum is using pickles to demonstrate the power of electricity, and this is exactly the kind of the thing PETP (People for the Ethical Treatment of Pickles) was organized to fight. It’s completely unnecessary,” a faux pickle spokesperson said.

The popular Beatles display is still thrilling music fans of all ages. “The Beatles! Backstage and Behind the Scenes” shows 84 never before publish photos of the Fab Four. This week only, the exhibit is turned into a sock hop at 2 p.m. with live music from renowned tribute band Free Ride.

The Manitoba Museum is open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., including on Good Friday.
