Tree Houses at the Delaware Museum of Natural History

Recently Fun Things had the opportunity to check out Delaware Museum of Natural History's new special exhibit Tree Houses. This cool exhibit will run through September 6th. Visitors can step inside an indoor tree house to discover hands-on activities that explore the many habitats trees provide for creatures large and small -- and people, too.

As you enter the tree house kids can look for signs of the animals that call the tree home. Kids and adults will love the wobbly bridge that you cross to enter the second tree house. My kids loved the forest sounds dance floor were you can move your feet to create forest sounds. After the kids have explored the tree house they can turn a tree into a house by scrolling through a film or build their own tree house using wooden building sticks.

WHAT: Tree Houses: Explore an indoor tree house and discover arboreal animals using stereoscopic viewfinders, tracking clues, natural artifacts, and sound. Sponsored by DuPont.
