NC has something for children of all ages

North Carolina Zoo

Kids Culture

C

lients can let their inner child loose in one of the many family-friendly attractions throughout the state, which continue to offer new exhibits, activities and services to keep visitors wanting more.
At the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh, the mission is to get
visitors up close and personal with science. Clients can get even closer to
scientists with the addition of the Nature Research Center, a new 80,000-square-foot
wing that showcases “science in action,” with researchers working in labs behind floor-toceiling glass, allowing visitors to watch them work. A centerpiece of the expansion is The
SECU Daily Planet, a three-story multimedia space where scientists present their work to
the public several times a day.
Opened this summer is the Greensboro Science Center’s Sciquarium, the first inland
aquarium in the state. The six exhibits will feature African penguins, fishing cats, Asian
small-clawed otters as well as an Amazon River mixed species habitat, stingray touch tank
and a 100,000-gallon Shark Reef.
Entry is included in the fee to the science center. The Sciquarium is the first of a $32
million three-phase Science City, USA master plan to unite the aquarium, museum and
zoo in one attraction.
The North Carolina Zoo recently welcomed back one of its favorite residents, Aquila,
one of two polar bears relocated while their home undergoes extensive renovations.
Scheduled to be completed in 2014, the $8.5 million upgrade will triple their living space
