60b. Rolling Hills Wildlife Museum


Part of the Rolling Hills Zoo is the Wildlife Museum.  Our daughter said this was her favorite part of the zoo.  It actually made us consider a membership.  We definitely want to revisit this adventure.  The museum is a venture through seven different regions.  Each region has a great set-up of wildlife/plants native to that region.  There are also animitronic humans that represent natives of each region and tell a story.  We stopped to listen along the way.  This is one museum you definitely want to take your time to experience the details,



One of the best parts of the museum was Hideaway Hollow.  What a great place for the kids to get to explore and play.  Our daughter loved the reading area (built like a tree house) and we could have spent hours there if we had hours to spend.  There were fun and educational project areas as well as a puppet theater and puppets of just about every animal imaginable.  We will have to spend more time there when we come back.


We also got to check out the Earl Bane Gallery.  They are currently working on the newest exhibit, Green Revolution.  The pictures are not yet hung on the wall, but they were sitting around and we could see them.  We did get to play a very fun game about "being green."  It is set up like chutes and ladders and our daughter won.  Maybe they should have frogs in their exhibit about "Green Revolution."  :)

Is this the lamp post from
Chronicles of Narnia?

Is Angel's power chair considered a vehicle?
