Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium opens to the public this Friday. In honor of its grand opening here are a few things to know.
1. Prepare for a Long Walk.
This is a completely go at your own pace type of activity but it is a mile and a half trail that will take you through several exhibits.
Several of the exhibits are interactive including places where people can feed and touch wildlife such as stingrays. Another fun thing for adults and kids are the pop-up aquariums. A person can submerge themselves into an environment by sticking their head into a designated area and get a 360 of the exhibit.
3. Time Has No Meaning.
Several of the rooms have light technology that in a matter of minutes will take you through a whole day of lighting.
4. Animals from all Around the World
There are more than just life fish at WOW Aquarium. There are thousands of live and preserved animals from all over the globe. A few of the bears even hold world records for their size. Some of the live ones will be out and about with their handlers.
5. Attention to Detail
Johnny Morris is all about the details. No matter how many times someone goes in, they'll notice something new each time.
6. Tons of Water
With the word 'aquarium' in the name, water is not necessarily unexpected but over a million gallons of fresh and salt water. This also includes walkways encased completely in a water exhibits.
7. WOLF Kids
The WOLF Kids might not be there all the time, but they sure do know their stuff. There are 46 of these 5th-grade students who have an interest in conservation. Instead of going to their normal public school, they were selected to the spend their 5th-grade year at John A. & Genny Morris Conservation Education Center.
