Veterinary Clinic Exhibit Opening – Powered by Zoetis

Celebrate the opening of our new Veterinary Clinic exhibit all weekend long – December 11 &12!

Powered by Zoetis, the new exhibit experience gives children the opportunity to act as a veterinarian performing make-believe check-ups and providing care to both companion and farm animals.

As part of this exhibit opening weekend, the Museum will host area non-profits focused on animal health for visitors to interact with, plus a free make-and-take craft will be available in its Tinker Theater.

Participating Organization on December 12:
Domesti-Pups: 1:00 – 3:00pm
Capital Humane Society: 2:00 – 4:00pm

This renovated space allows children to:

  • put on a white veterinarian coat and perform pretend medical tasks
  • review real animal x-rays on an oversized light box
  • check animal medical records and perform check-ups on the plush animals
  • test their animal knowledge as part of two interactive games
  • learn about career opportunities within the field of veterinary science
