‘Dogs! A Science Tail’ exhibit makes its debut in Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. — A paw-some exhibition is coming to town this Summer!


Visitors will learn about the special bond between humans and dogs through an interactive experience.

Also, they will get a sense of how our furry friends think and sense the world.

‘Dogs! A Science Tail’ had its grand opening at the Orlando Science Center on Saturday morning.

The exhibit has over a dozen interactive pieces that will allow guests to understand how our four-legged friends experience the world, where dogs came from, and what makes the human-dog bond so special.

Here are some features of this exhibit:

  • ‘Jeopawdy’ game to test guests’ canine pop-culture knowledge.
  • Become a ‘bark-eologist’ and excavate replica fossils to find out whether they belonged to dogs or wolves.
  • Analyze bones and DNA patterns to learn how wolves evolved into the dogs we love today.
  • A pup-photo wall where guests can share a story or a photo of their dog.

The exhibit was brought to the City Beautiful by Orlando Health, but it was created and developed by the California Science Center with support from Annenberg Foundation and Wallis Annenberg PetSpace.

Dogs! A Science Tail is included in the general admission of the Orlando Science Center and is free to members.

Even though the exhibit is about our paw-some friends, only humans, and service animals are allowed.
