They say that a dog is a man’s best friend. We’ve seen how strong that bond could be through our own experiences, in the news, and in pop culture. And now guests will be able to experience the extraordinary way that dogs see, hear, and smell the world, at California Science Center’s DOGS! A SCIENCE TAIL beginning March 16, 2019. This highly interactive exhibition also invites guests to share personal photos and stories of their dogs on a photo wall. As a special daily feature, there will be live demonstrations of dogs in various roles, showing rescue, agility, sensory and service skills.
There will be plenty of hands-on experiences for the guests to help them understand the unique relationship between humans and dogs, and what makes this one of the most successful interspecies partnerships of all time. These Experiences will range from listening to hidden sounds that dogs can hear but humans can’t, excavating replicas of actual fossils to determine if they belong to wolves or dogs, walking a dog through an interactive neighborhood to understand how pets strengthen the community or testing your pop-culture knowledge during a game of “Jeopawdy!” based on the show Jeopardy! Additionally, Science Center will feature the highly-anticipated documentary Superpower Dogs which is narrated by Chris Evans and takes audiences on an immersive IMAX® adventure to experience the life-saving superpowers and extraordinary bravery of some of the world’s most amazing dogs. Superpower Dogs in IMAX® 3D will open at the California Science Center on March 16, 2019.
While this exhibit celebrates everything about dogs, they aren’t allowed to join in on the fun. The exhibit is exclusively available to humans. So apologies to the canine fur babies. However, service dogs are welcome to aid those who need assistance. Furthermore, emotional support animals, comfort animals, pets and therapy dogs are not considered to be service animals under the Americans With Disabilities Act and are not permitted in the Science Center. Service dogs must behave in a safe manner and be under control at all times.
Dogs! A Science Tail exhibition ticket prices range from $7.95 to $9.95. Discounted combo tickets for both the exhibition and IMAX movies are available.
