Museum of Natural History

In this demonstration, dive deep into the history of whales. Explore some of the earliest known whales! Look at how whales have adapted to thrive underwater by comparing archaic whales to modern whales. Discover how paleontologists study fossils to find the missing link to the earliest known whale ancestor. Finally, you will get the chance to make your own cast of an archaic Dorudon whale tooth!

Hands-on demonstrations are 20-30 minute interactive programs on the 2nd floor of the Museum.
They include both brief presentations highlighting University research and engaging hands-on activities, and are suitable for adults and children ages 5 and up.
