Science Center Exhibits


Explore what lurks in our oceans and what crawls under our feet in our shark and bug exhibits. Wild World of Bugs reveals our connections to the diverse and interesting lifeforms that, however small, play a huge role in shaping life as we know it. Sharks: Magnificent and Misunderstood submerges visitors into educational deep sea adventures, featuring digital games and displays that uncover shark science. Our asteroid cave is a gateway to exhibits that explore the terrain of Mars as well as the rovers that traverse the red planet itself. Downstairs, visitors use critical thinking skills to solve fun, prehistoric puzzles in our Puzzling the Past exhibit.
