Head to this exhibition to get a glimpse of life from a bug's perspective! "Shrink" to the size of a penny and explore worm tunnels and soil chambers that are home to a diverse array of tiny creatures. The exhibit teaches children how plants, animals and humans all play crucial parts in maintaining delicate ecosystems.
Learn about the two lions that killed over 135 railroad workers and villagers in the span of 9 months. The killings occurred during the construction of a railroad bridge across the Tsavo River in East Africa. Terrified, many workers fled the area and did not return until John Henry Patterson managed to kill both lions in 1898. Currently, Field Museum staff members are conducting ecological studies in the Tsavo region and genetic studies on the different types of lions in the area.
Young explorers can satisfy their curiosity by learning about real artifacts, specimens and different cultures. This interactive exhibit allows children to dance to Latin beats, play African drums, explore a dinosaur's nest, explore a pueblo home and much more!
