“But there’s one sound
that no one knows…
What does the fox say?”
Perhaps you and your kids can find out what the fox says (Ylvis – The Fox – What Does The Fox Say? Lyrics | MetroLyrics ) and the birds and even the fish at Science Works’ current exhibition entitled, “Wild Music: Songs & Sounds of Life.”
The natural world has many musicians and their creations unite us through their distinct forms of communication. Find out how animals and nature speak to all of us and why it is so important for us to listen. It is not just the fox that has things to tell us.
Besides the current exhibition, Science Works always has year-round exhibits about motion, anatomy, chemistry and more. There is even a “Climb Through” exhibit for kids to explore fossils and geological periods while releasing that excess physical energy that their parents covet and fear simultaneously.
For children under five years old, Discovery Island is a one thousand square foot of exploration featuring the Shipwreck Playhouse. But there is even more …On the weekends, the “Science Live” shows happen at 11:30 am and 3:30 pm for no additional admission fee.
This Ashland museum is open every day from 11:00 to 6:00 pm and is an official Blue Star museum which means active-duty military and their families get in for free. Additionally, the first Sunday of every month offers discounted admission to all with special programming like live shows.
You might even find out what your dog says at Science Works because on Sunday (August 11th), furry companions are allowed at the museum from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. If you miss this day, check out their calendar to see all their upcoming events: (https://scienceworksmuseum.org/events/. Wild Music runs through September 2nd and promises to provide a roaring good time that children will not want to miss.
