'This Sunday (16 March), 11am – 4pm, another round of theBrain Games will take place at Cardiff’s National Museum. The free event follows the huge success of last year, which attracted more than 2,600 children and their families.
Children will be able to collect points and win prizes by participating in educational and fun challenges.
For those who attended in 2013, many of the old favourites have been brought back, including the "Brain Wars Force Trainer", "Flipped Shootout" and "Ghost Hand."
There are also numerous new activities, such as "Illusion Hunt" which will weave people through the Brain Games. Children will be able to shrink their families down to the size of a baby using the "Incredible Shrinking Chair" and learn how to move objects using their eyes in "Focus Pocus."
Throughout the day, there will be special talks given by Professor John Aggleton, School of Psychology, on "What Dinosaur’s Brains Were Like," and the Brain Games team will run sessions where children will be able to use an MRI scan and try their hand at being a neurosurgeon under the watchful eye of real brain surgeon Professor Liam Gray.
Local artist Penelope Rose Cowley will be exhibiting her artwork at the event as part of the Massive Dynamic project, a collaboration between Cardiff neuroscientists.'

Recently, I heard that National Museum of Wales doesn't stop on coming up with certain activities that will surely incite a lot of people to visit them. It is a goos strategy because we noticed that there was a decline in number of people who visit museum. That is the reason why National Museum of Wales came up with a perfect subtle strategy to keep the people coming once again. They invited several artists to visit them which I think was a good idea! Hopefully, other museums will come up with great strategies too!
