Hightail it into Orlando Science Center for a paw-some new Summer exhibit - Dogs! A Science Tail

Dogs have long been referred to as a human’s best friend, but now, experience for yourself the extraordinary way that dogs see, hear, and smell the world around them.

Orlando Science Center Dogs! A Science Tail

In a new summer exhibition Dogs! A Science Tail presented by Orlando Health, visitors to Orlando Science Center can learn first-hand what makes this unique bond between us and our canine companions one of the most successful interspecies partnerships of all time.

Dogs! A Science Tail opens to the public at noon on May 27, and will run through until September 4, 2023.

Visitors will have a ball sniffing out hidden smells, testing out the speed of their own zoomies against different breeds, and getting inside a dog’s head to see and hear how they do. The love between people and puppies is a tail as old as time! Guests are invited to step into the role of bark-eologist and dig into the history of our fur-ever friends.

Excavate replica fossils to find out whether they belonged to dogs or wolves, analyze bones and DNA patterns to see how scientists study dog domestication, and see how wolves evolved into the diverse doggos we know and love today. With over a dozen different interactive exhibit pieces, Dogs! A Science Tail explores the science behind where dogs came from, how dogs experience the world, what makes our bond so special, and how to care for dogs.
