Teaching Creatures' programs are designed to introduce children to the diversity of the animal kingdom and to help them make meaningful connections with the natural world. Though programs are aimed at young people, they can easily be adapted for adult audiences.

All programs are offered 7 days a week, and provide:
  • A hands-on experience! Along with the animals, the audience gets the chance to touch real and replica skins, skulls, and other biofacts.
  • Colorful, photographic displays to liven up the room during the program.
  • A great way to enhance your science curriculum and complement the Massachusetts frameworks.
