Bats: Myths and Mysteries
Opening September 20 on Level 2
Presented by the Organization for Bat Conservation and Cranbrook Institute of Science, Bats: Myths and Mysteries combines a museum-quality educational exhibit with the excitement of live animals.
Guests can try out a pair of giant bat ears, allowing them to experience the sensitivity of bat hearing, match bats with their preferred foods, and search for replica bats concealed in a variety of habitats. Other interactive components guide visitors into bat behaviors such as echolocation, habitat choices, and maternal duties. Throughout the exhibition, visitors are immersed into the compelling realm of bats.
In addition, live bats offer a glimpse of amazing diversity and include Central and South American Leaf-Nosed Bats, African Fruit Bats, and Asian Fruit Bats. Some of these bats boast wingspans of 5 feet!
