The Manitoba MuseumThe Manitoba Museum will be a destination for music fans to visit ahead of the upcoming Juno Awards.

Beginning March 15, the Boeing Explore Science Zone will offer visitors a series of activities that explore the scientific principles of vibrations and waves that govern music and instruments. This hands-on workshop will deal with music, sound and vibrations.

Some of the planned activities include Buzzin’ Bones, an exhibit that allows you to listen to music through your teeth by biting down on a bon conductor while wearing headphones.

Visitors will also get to try wearing a head harp, where you can change the pitch of sound by adding or removing tension on guitar strings.

There are nine workshops in total, which will run weekends only. Admission is $9 for adults, $7.50 for youth, students and seniors and $30 for a family (two adults, up to four youth).
