What's happening this Wednesday? We are excited to share with you a few behind the scenes images of our new exhibits under construction.
Here you can see two different exhibits in the midst of their builds. The first three images show pieces that will be featured in a play area dedicated to toddlers. The next two images are from an exhibit that will showcase insects, their positive and negative attributes.
While these show progress in exhibit construction, please remember that we still have much to do. We are working hard toward a grand opening in 2018. We appreciate your support and enthusiasm and hope you will continue to follow along with us during this journey!

What's happening around the site of the new Cook Museum of Natural Science? You may have seen some new items installed to the exterior of the property.
9 sandstone boulders were delivered from Oneonta, Alabama, last week and carefully placed throughout the museum's landscape. One boulder weighed as much as 5 tons.
Here are just a few amazing photos from the delivery day taken by our friend Juergen Beck of @Freedom Light Productions.
