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.
