As a non-profit science museum and zoo, CuriOdyssey lets kids loose to observe wild animals, experiment with scientific phenomena and let the natural world answer their questions. We treat kids like the geniuses they are. Children can play with custom exhibits where they experiment and investigate the fundamental forces in nature while having fun. They see rescued native wildlife that includes river otters, bobcats, and raptors in a walk-through aviary. CuriOdyssey offers educational and fun science programs and camps with professional educators that give students experiences with phenomena that encourage inquiry and develop critical thinking. See the CuriOdyssey website for special events and special hours. https://curiodyssey.org less
