CuriOdyssey exhilarates youthful spirits with its small-scale, highly interactive nature museum, home to more than 100 live animals, including bobcats, river otters, and a porcupine who live inside naturalistic wildlife habitats. Guests can meander through the 4,000-square-foot walk-through aviary, which harbors airborne creatures including the great horned owl, snowy egret, and the famously flighty Big Bird, or they can wander through the 1.3 acres of butterfly, hummingbird, and seasonal gardens. Meanwhile, pint-size patrons can learn using their finger mitts at the hands-on exhibits such as the outdoor Backyard Science exploration, opening June 26, and the mechanics-infused tinkering display. The species specialists at CuriOdyssey also pass on their critter tutelage during wildlife shows, letting visitors listen to fact-filled lectures, view live feedings, or trade cricket-based recipes with a California newt.
