In The Dark

June 9, 2018 - September 9, 2018

Explore different environments of darkness and the unique life forms that inhabit them through a combination of hands-on and whole-body interactives, walk-through dioramas, and specimens. Wander through a nocturnal forest past glowing mushrooms, and discover the amazing underground worlds beneath basement floors and backyards. Fragile cave ecosystems provide a labyrinth of adventure, and take the plunge to explore the unique life deep in the world's oceans. Finally, discover how darkness has intrigued and influenced humans for thousands of years, and how we can help preserve fragile worlds without light. In The Dark was developed by the Cincinnati Museum Center.

"In The Dark" is sponsored in-part by Bill & Carol Niezer.
