Wait times for the exhibit are rare, but on occasion there has been a wait time that averages a maximum of 10 minutes. While you wait, you are welcome to remain inside the Center to stay in line, or explore the trails outside and heading back inside at a later time to see if the wait has gone down. If you do choose to explore outside while you wait, we cannot guarantee you will remain in your spot in line. 

The average time it takes to full explore and enjoy the exhibit is 45 minutes. However, you are welcome to spend more or less time inside as well!

To ensure the safety of our guests, we are limiting the number of people inside the exhibit at one time. Due to this, there may be occasional wait times to enter the exhibit, and we thank you for your patience during these waits.

There will also be a routine 15 minute cleaning every day at noon to sanitize the exhibit pieces. Thank you for your patience during this routine cleaning.

Strollers are allowed inside the exhibit, but to fully explore and enjoy the exhibit we recommend parking it in our designated “Stroller Parking” area inside the Nature Center.
