Backyard Adventures


Opens September 23, 2017

As the weather gets colder, come inside to learn about the science in your own backyard. There is more to a backyard than you image! See the world from a bee's eye view, study the zoology of nocturnal animals, learn about growing giant vegetables, play backyard sports, and much more. Backyard Adventures demonstrates that science is in everything and everyone can be a scientist.

There's More To Your Backyard Than You Imagine!

Backyard Adventures gives families and children the chance to see the unseen and take a closer look at the world around them! Become more aware of your local world and how things interact in and around it in a fun and interactive way.

Children can investigate what their favorite backyard critters do at night with night vision, play dress up and get a bee's eye view of the world, dig through the "dirt" in an augmented reality garden bed, and even play a round of Garden Golf!

Visitors of all ages will also learn through fun, interactive games like Nectar Collector, Plant vs. Insect, and the Giant Pumpkin Bonanza game show!

Head on over to the Nature Museum to explore Backyard Adventures when it opens on Saturday, September 23!
