Dogs! A Science Tail

A national traveling exhibition to debut in Spring 2019

DOGS! A Science Tail is an immersive 7,000 - 9,000-square-foot traveling exhibition that explores the bond between humans and dogs—one of the most successful interspecies partnerships of all time. Divided into four sections and a demonstration space, this exhibition reveals where dogs came from, how dogs experience the world, what makes our bond so special, and how to care for dogs. Immersive experiences invite guests to see, hear, smell, and think like a dog! With support from the California Science Center’s contacts and program handbook, host museums can schedule demonstrations by trained professionals and their amazing canines. Guests will have opportunities to see real dogs, pretend to be dogs, and share their favorite dog photos and videos in the exhibit.
