From Curiosity to Science

Humans are curious. This curiosity has led to collecting, scientific inquiry and the development of science, and the establishment of museums. This exhibit tells that story.

As you walk through the Cabinet of Curiosity, you’ll see more than 500 objects, specimens, animals, artwork, artifacts and more. Cabinets like this one, demonstrating human curiosity, led to the development of natural sciences and museums. At the other end of the cabinet, you will be transported back to our modern museum.

Explore six local ecosystems – water, wetlands, grasslands, forests, polar, and arid – and compare them with a global example to discover the plants, animals and people who rely on and impact those ecosystems. Get up close to a life-sized polar bear. Play games to help humans and animals find food, water and shelter. Watch videos of scientists researching in the field, and learn how you can make an impact on our planet.
