Before your children can utter the words that make most parents cringe, here’s a deal for an afternoon of education and fun. The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University has posted a $2 off admission offer on their website to experience the Birds of Paradise Exhibit.
Visitors will journey to the rainforest of New Guinea and learn about the land of exotic birds of paradise. This exhibit also features the groundbreaking research of photographer Tim Laman and Cornell ornithologist Edwin Scholes. There is also an opportunity to view the birds’ cinematic courtship dances, puffed-out plumage, wild calls, and wacky behaviors through video, photography, soundscapes, and displays on research and conservation.
Specimens, illustrations, and the chance to learn signature bird moves in a unique dance-off make this attraction fun for the whole family. And can help your children stave off some of the summer humdrum.
Readers can purchase tickets online and download them and print them out. This admission ticket entitles users to see all of the museum, not just The Birds of Paradise exhibit.
Tickets must be used by Sept. 1
