Wolf to Woof: The Story of Dogs - our blockbuster summer exhibition - is now open at miSci!

Wolf to Woof: The Story of Dogs is the largest and most comprehensive traveling exhibition ever created on the history, biology and evolution of dogs. The exhibit sniffs out the facts on the unique role of dogs in human societies and what makes the human/dog relationship so unique. It also uses the familiarity and love of these four-legged friends to explore science and biological concepts.
