Backyard Adventures

Now Open – May 3, 2020

Discover the wonders of nature and play to experience the fascinating science that’s in your backyard? Look no further than Backyard Adventures coming to the Witte Museum February 15th

Backyard Adventures showcases interactive science displays such as Night Vision, Bee’s Eye View, Giant Pumpkin Bonanza, Critter Calls, Backyard Sports, Garden Golf and an Augmented Reality Garden Bed. Engaging visitors with science and technology, this exhibit enables visitors to continue discovering the wonders of our own backyards long after leaving the exhibition.  

Discover the outdoors from the perspective of a bee, take a walk through a digital garden to see plants grow in super time and investigate creatures that only come out at night. Backyard Adventures, created by Scitech and produced by Imagine Exhibitions, emphasizes the importance of staying healthy and active by showing visitors how much fun awaits outdoors and demonstrating that there is much more to our backyard than we imagine. 

Learn and experience that the backyard is full of science from the biological interactions between plants and insects, the zoology of nocturnal animals, the horticultural know- how that goes into growing giant vegetables, the mathematical genius needed to lay pavers to the feats of construction that can go on in the shed.

Learn all of this and so much more in Backyard Adventures open now through May 3, 2020. Tickets are available at the Sally and Ganahl Walker Admissions Desk or save time and buy online.
