CuriOdyssey is a hands-on science center and zoo. With over 50 native, non-releasable animals and interactive science exhibits, CuriOdyssey provides visitors with opportunities to get up close with all aspects of the natural world.
CuriOdyssey’s newest exhibit, Backyard Science, removes science from the lab and gives it a home in the CuriOdyssey’s gardens. Experiment with ambient sound tubes, listen with a giant ear, and test what it's like to have "superhuman" vision! Kids of all ages can experience scientific phenomena through these curiosity-inspiring, hands-on exhibits.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
