Featuring displays of more than 100 skeletons and fossils, visitors will learn more about bones, the skeleton and its vital role in healthy living.
The displays include everything from bats to elephants, from dodo to dinosaurs.
This year, researchers from the Musculoskeletal Research Group (MRG) at Newcastle University will be taking part with a series of public talks, displays, demonstrations and workshops.
The MRG is an international group of around 80 scientists researching bone diseases including bone cancers, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Newcastle supports world class research into these diseases and hosts the European League Against Rheumatism Centre for Excellence.
