Animal Week at RMSC

Animal Week at RMSC

Animals as Superheroes

Saturday, Feb. 15 – Sunday, Feb. 23
11am—3 pm

Explore and discover the amazing world of the animal kingdom. From insects to mammals and beyond, join us to learn about how creatures have many ways and "superpowers" that help them survive in different environments. Get hands-on while learning about amazing animals big and small and how their adaptations have helped inspire technical innovations. Come back each day to meet different live animals from the Wildlife Rockstars! 

There will be a variety of different animals visiting the museum each day of the week, including:

Coypus; ring tailed lemurs; Red eared slider turtles; porcupines; bearded dragons; geckos; toads; stick bugs; Russian tortoises; silver foxes; Eastern kangaroos; and plenty of other interesting creatures!*

*The animals listed may not be at the museum every day of the week, and appearances will vary. Animals need a break too!
