In the interest of public health, the Montshire’s building, grounds, and trails are temporarily closed until further notice.
Featuring real tools of scientific research, Discovering the Natural World makes learning about living plants and animals an interactive process that will surprise and delight. Get curious as you explore interconnected exhibits that help you discover your inner scientist.
The Discovering the Natural World exhibition includes the Museum’s live Leafcutter Ants colony, a full-size moose, collections of specimens to examine and compare, a video microscope with plenty of interesting samples to make close observations of, and much more.
Creation of the Discovering the Natural World exhibition at the Montshire was made possible in part by donors to the David Goudy Discovery Fund.
