Wolf to Woof: The Story of Dogs
Feb. 13 | 7-8:30 p.m.

Be the first to explore the largest and most comprehensive exhibit on the history, biology and evolution of dogs. Sniff out the facts to learn the unique role of dogs in different human societies and what makes the human/dog relationship special. Enter a “howling area” to guess what dogs are saying, test the human nose against a canine’s great sense of smell and climb into an avalanche scene to see what it's like to be saved by a search-and-rescue dog.
