Extended hours are here! Kidzeum is now open every Wednesday - Sunday from 9am - 4pm!

Coming Soon: Turtle Travels

Opens to the public: May 28, 2022
Grand Opening Celebration: June 4, 2022

Turtles and tortoises face threats from habitat challenges and the international pet trade. You can help these reptiles survive and migrate safely! Play Turtle Migration in a giant board game. Track a hidden turtle using telemetry. See how shell shapes suit different lifestyles and habitats. Design a turtle-friendly housing development. Find out what a loggerhead sea turtle sees as it swims! Better yet, the Henson Robinson Zoo are lending us their turtles so the whole family can see turtles up close and personal!

Turtle Travels is a traveling exhibit created by the Environmental Exhibit Collaborative with support from Jane’s Trust and the Institute for Museum and Library Services.

This exhibit is sponsored by our friends at LRS!
