 Fun and learning come together in this innovative and delightful traveling exhibition, now available!

kid overview

 FORE! The Planet is a highly interactive and playful exhibition that pairs important environmental issues with the fun of miniature golf! Explore a tropical rainforest, navigate a polluted waterway, and learn how to make a wildlife refuge in your own backyard, all while playing  a game of miniature golf. Serious fun for the whole family! Click Here for Full Description


Fore! The Planet's message is one of stewardship and conservation. Each of the 18 holes is themed with a different topic, and visitors are encouraged to learn about such diverse topics as evolution, dinosaur extinction, butterfly metamorphosis and a "hole" lot more! The more the visitor learns about the scientific topic the hole is based on, the better they will play.


hole 8

For example, in Hole 8, Predator and Prey, when players identify their golf ball as a housefly (prey), trying to get food from a picnic (where the hole is located), they realize they must avoid the mouth of the frog (predator) and the spider’s web (another predator). As they are learning about important facts and relationships in the natural world, they are also learning to avoid these hazards in order to play the game more efficiently. Their reward is to finish the hole with fewer strokes.




Originally developed by the Academy of Natural Sciences, Fore! The Planet is once again on the road. Limited bookings available!

Now is your chance to examine all the intricacies of the insect world....without a microscope!

A long-arm beetle more than ten feet tall, a giant butterfly with a five foot wingspan, and heavily-armored stag beetles with jaws as big as your leg await you in this fascinating look at the insect world.


BUGS: Outside the Box presents a selection of greatly enlarged insect sculptures, each showcasing the beauty hidden within the (mini)beasts of the natural world.
Intricate details not visible to the naked eye are showcased alongside educational topics, including an exciting look at museum collections and taxonomy, and an exploration of the power of magnification.


Outhouse Exhibit Services has teamed up with Italian sculptor and naturalist Lorenzo Possenti of Ecofauna to create this traveling exhibition, which is the premiere of his work in the United States. Lorenzo's exceptional and detailed works of art showcase the marriage of art and science. Check back to watch for developments of more exhibitions featuring the works of Ecofauna.

Is it true? Are they real?! Let Dr. Entomo be your guide as you explore the wonderful world of bugs in all their strange splendor. From glow-in-the-dark scorpions, cow-killing ants and the feared black widow, to the scary but harmless Giant Millipede and Chilean rose hair tarantula,  Dr. Entomo's Palace of Exotic Wonders fascinates visitors of all ages!


Displayed in a carnival atmosphere, this exhibit features living insects and arthropods and discusses their various life habits under the guise of a traditional circus sideshow.  "Glowing Terror" are revealed to be modest black scorpions;  the "Chemical Factory" describes the chemical defenses necessary for survival, and "Living Mummies" become the life stages of the Darkling beetle. What is at once startling and unfamiliar becomes fascinating and engaging as you explore the true nature of bugs.


Suitable for visitors of all ages, this exhibit is family-friendly in its design and content. Click HERE for a full description.

Tarantulas have a reputation that precedes them - a reputation of being the biggest, the baddest, and most fearsome of all spiders. Hairy, fast, scary - sure, there's some truth behind the rumors. But would you ever guess that these supposedly fierce giants of the spider world would much rather run and hide than stay fight?

tarantulas_in_motionTarantulas: Alive and Up Close takes the visitor on a journey of scientific discovery, presenting tarantulas in a new light. Focusing on the diverse and natural beauty of these incredible animals, the exhibit provides a uniquely engaging educational experience. girlbigbook
