    Welcome to Outside In, the children’s discovery center at the Academy. After a month-long makeover in February 2014, the popular hands-on exhibit has reopened with exciting new activities and renovated play areas. Designed for children ages 3–8 and their parents, Outside In is a warm, welcoming place where inquisitive youngsters can investigate a forest, visit the seashore, see and touch live animals, and much more.

    Some new elements to look for on your next visit include:

    an eagle’s nest kids can climb into and pretend to be a majestic bird
    a nature lab filled touchable animal skulls, furs, claws and teeth
    a large-screen projection of natural objects that can be swapped in and out
    a sandy beach to play in
    a life-size tree with hidden animals children can enjoy rediscovering with each visit

    Access is included with general admission
    $13.95 - $17.95
