Animals & Exhibits

Outside in the Zoo

Under a giant overhead net, animals roam freely and safely with visitors in a beautiful, natural, and whimsical setting.  Featured exhibits include the Big Treehouse, Meerkat Canyon, Raccoon Creek, Underwater Tunnel, What Lives in that Hole, Rabbit Meadow, Tortoise Hill, Macaw Tree, Water Bird Pond, and Wildlife Circle (where visitors can meet animals and talk with Zookeepers).

Indoor science exhibits

We invite children to playfully explore natural phenomena like gravity, inertia, force, motion, balance, energy, states of matter, electricity, and magnetism.  Kids can play with simple machines, make a time-lapsed movie, cooperate with other kids to move balls through a giant ball machine, or make a ball machine of their own.  They can also explore objects in the Museum’s extensive natural history collection, and there is a special place just for babies.
