In the Dark
May 29 – Sept. 12
Darkness may elevate excitement, inspire curiosity, or cause hesitation, but rarely can it be ignored. Darkness challenges animals and plants to adapt to life without light because they still need to find food, find mates and avoid predators, whether in caves, the deep sea or even a forest at night. Since prehistoric times, humans have sought to understand darkness and its mysteries, and have learned from these nocturnal creatures to create new technologies to disperse the dark and kindle light. Explore this hands-on exhibit and investigate and solve some of these mysteries using interactive stations, walk-through dioramas, models and engaging explanatory panels.
Darkness beckons exploration; prepare to discover what’s In the Dark!
