Exploration StationThe Exploration Station

The  Exploration Station is the museum's popular live animal and nature gallery. Here you can come face-to-face with an exotic animal, or perhaps one that lives in your own back yard. Our goal is to promote awareness of the other inhabitants of our world by revealing where and how they live. Some very strange and interesting creatures await your visit. Touchable natural history specimens, books, art objects, and exhibits complement your experience in this wonderful world of animals.

The health and safety of our resident animals is a priority in the Exploration Station. Staff members determine how and when animals will be available for contact with visitors.
