Lars the Little Polar Bear
Explore the changing Arctic landscape in this full-dome movie adventure
The Carolinas are home to many critters considered creepy. From snakes and spiders to millipedes and mealworms, we have it all. Join us as we explore how important these critters actually are. Activities include animal encounters, stories, crafts and more.
This month at Discovery Place Nature, we will be investigating Crawling and Creepy Critters. From venomous to totally harmless, we'll be getting up close and personal with them all. Stop by the Museum this month and explore these creepy crawlies up close.
Every Wednesday and Saturday at 12:30 p.m., join us for special story times and activities where kids and adults alike can discover spiders, snakes, millipedes and more.
Anything else going on this month?
In addition to our weekly creep-filled opportunities, October has plenty of opportunities to get into the fall and Halloween spirit.
Stop by Boo Bash on Saturday, October 27 to enjoy story time, special shows, animal encounters and a costume contest. As always, you can spend time in the Museum on our monthly Bird Walk or stroll throughout the Museum and see if you can identify some of the creatures we’re learning about this month.
