Exhibit Opens September 21, 2012

(Las Vegas, NV)— Families and children can spend some quality time hanging out in the trees with a visit to the museum’s newest traveling exhibit, Tree House: Look Who’s Living in the Trees. Located on the second floor, the exhibit opens September 21, 2012 and runs through January 14, 2013. The focus of this new hands-on exhibit moves up, in, around and even underneath trees. Tree Houses includes fun ways to explore the important roles that trees play in providing homes for all sorts of wild things (including people)! Incorporating all of the senses, this popular exhibit engages forest explorers of all ages in indoor nature explorations and the ecology of sustainable harvesting of this important natural resource.
In this exhibit, children can:

  • Look for signs of animal tree dwellers as they walk through an indoor tree house and across a wobbly connecting bridge
  • Play a computerized forest game where they can harvest trees without harming wildlife
  • View tree houses people have built around the world— even design and build their own
  • See stereoscopic 3-D images of some of the smaller animals living in trees
  • Listen for animals inside the tree house and try to guess their sounds on an “animal dance floor”
  • Peer down from inside a “crow’s nest” (and peer down at the folks “on the ground”)
  • Revisit favorite fictional tree dwellers, from the Ewoks of Star Wars to Winnie the Pooh
