Animals and insects will be on display — and on the menu — at the Museum of Discovery and Science’s “Meet the Animals Weekend” on Saturday and Sunday.
Kids can meet the museum’s resident sea turtle in the “Turtle Talk” show, head to the “About Anthropods” demonstration to learn the difference between insects and arachnids, then swallow their fears and munch on the crunchy critters at the “Edible Bugs” exhibit.
Other exhibits will show visitors the museum’s animal collection, teach them how to make their own pet toys, and explain the history and impact of poaching.
The artistically inclined can help create animals for the museum’s mural.
“Meet the Animals Weekend” exhibits will be open from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the museum, 401 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale.
Admission is $14 for adults, $12 for children up to age 12 and free for children younger than 2.
