May 30: MS Museum of Natural Science Unleashes “Wolf to Woof: The Story of Dogs”

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks’ Museum of Natural Science is unleashing the largest and most comprehensive exhibition ever created on dogs! The museum will host the exhibit from May 30, 2015 through January 3, 2016. This exhibit sniffs out the facts on the unique role of dogs in human societies.  Learn the furry facts of canines, enter a howling area, test your sense of smell, and explore a search and rescue dog scene!

The museum will also host dog-themed “Creature Features” throughout the year. In addition, “Museum Mutts”, a special end of summer event, is scheduled for August 1 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. “Join us for this celebration of all things dog – including police dog agility demonstrations, McGruff the Crime Dog, and more dog-gone fun activities,” invites conservation educator Nicole Smith.

“Wolf to Woof: The Story of Dogs” was created by Wonderworks Exhibits Company and is sponsored locally by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks, the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science Foundation, Nissan North America, Inc., Regions Bank, Gertrude C. Ford Foundation, and other generous supporters.
