In the 22,000-square-foot building, visitors will walk through Northwest Arkansas’s seasons and discover how they affect native plants and animals. Monitors will display videos of seasonal staples – from snow flurries and migrating geese during winter to summer’s sunny days. Exhibits will include a simulated cave big enough for kids and their families to explore.
Kids will splash and play in a digital, interactive stream, complete with schools of fish that will react to movement. The stream is connected to a 1,200-gallon aquarium with live versions of the fish seen in the digital stream.
Younger children will be able to treat their senses to tangible items from the world of wildlife, such as bones, furs, feathers and many more.
