Sniff out the science behind our puppy love at the Museum of Science! Let curiosity be your guide and discover life from a dog’s point of view in Dogs! A Science Tail, a richly interactive exhibition for humans. Experience the extraordinary way a dog sees, hears, and smells the world through fun and unique hands-on activities and uncover the science of our enduring bond.
From lovable companions to loyal protectors, dogs have evolved over thousands of years from ancient wolves into the cuddly canines that live and work alongside us today. They can rescue us from peril, provide help to people in need, or offer a furry shoulder to lean on. Dig deeper into these incredible animals and how they communicate with each other — and with us!
Explore how science is helping us better understand our tail wagging companions and what makes our relationship one of the most successful interspecies partnerships of all time. Train a virtual dog to heed your commands and unearth replica fossils of wolves and dogs to reveal their surprising similarities. You’ll also enjoy walking an invisible dog through a neighborhood maze, playing a special game of “pup culture” Jeopardy, and exploring the various careers that involve these intelligent animals. Be sure to record your own story of a special dog and proudly share your puppy pictures in the exhibition photo gallery.
Don’t miss this chance to discover how dogs have nuzzled their way into human society and into our hearts to become our loyal sidekicks and life-saving heroes. You’ll never look at dogs the same way again!
This exhibit was created and developed by the California Science Center with support from Annenberg Foundation and Wallis Annenberg PetSpace. PetSmart Charities is sponsoring the national tour.
