Have you ever wondered what your dog was thinking or whether she can understand what you’re saying? The traveling exhibition “Dogs! A Science Tail” offers a thrilling new interactive experience highlighting the dynamic bond between humans and dogs that enables guests to explore how dogs think and sense the world around them.
With features including a challenge to run faster than a chihuahua, full-sized dog models for exploring pet care, and virtual training stations, as well as a photo wall for guests to share personal photos and stories of their dogs, the exhibition is broken into four parts including:
The Incredible Dog: Step into a dog’s world through playful, immersive activities where guests test their running pace against the top speeds of various breeds, watch dual screens that shows what you see next to how it appears to your dog, and learn how dogs think and communicate with each other and with humans.
Dogs and Humans, Together Forever: Explore how dogs and humans live and work together through unique bonds that affect people and societies through interaction with a playful virtual dog, test canine pop-culture knowledge in a “Jeopardy!” game show aptly named “Jeopawdy!,” and explore jobs for dogs as well as careers humans can do with dogs.
Tail as Old as Time: Discover the amazing origin story of dogs through roleplay as an archaeologist, analyze bones and DNA patterns to see how scientists study the effects of dog domestication, and understand how dogs evolved from ancient wolves into a lovable and diverse array of canine companions.
Caring for Dogs: Explore the possibilities and responsibilities that come with bringing a dog into your life and find out how to care for these furry family members, including training, brushing, and more
“So many of us — more than 60 million Americans — love our dogs,” said George Sparks, President & CEO of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. “And we couldn’t imagine a more exciting, interactive way to explore and inspire a love of nature and science than through the eyes of our furry friends.”
To complement the exhibition, the Museum will feature the award winning documentary “Superpower Dogs,” an inspiring IMAX® adventure highlighting the life saving superpowers and extraordinary bravery of some of the world’s most amazing dogs narrated by Chris Evans.
