Supper Surprise - ages 8 and up

Owls are one of the coolest hunters out there, and children will have the opportunity to learn about them: from their sense of hearing and eyesight, all the way to how they catch and eat their prey. Feel real (taxidermy) owls, and dissect an owl pellet-and then, of course, try to identify what the owl ate: was it a shrew, a mouse, or a bird?

Critter Parade - ages 3 and up

The children will be visited by three of our friendly museum animals, and learn about the trio-such as their eating habits and living conditions, both in the wild and here, at the museum! On top of it all, children will have a chance to get up close and personal the animals, if they so choose!

Outer Limits - ages  3 and up

We don't just live in Prince George, or even just in Canada-we live on planet Earth, in our solar system! Children will learn about our solar system, and about how air pressure works in the vacuum of space. We will place an assortment of things in the vacuum chamber and play with the air pressure, and see what happens.
