The Robot Zoo at The Montshire Museum of Science - Chameleon

The “Robot Zoo” , a nationally touring exhibition, reveals the magic of nature as a master engineer.  Visit the Montshire Museum and explore the bio-mechanics of complex animal robots to discover how real animals work.  The robot animals and hands-on activities illustrate fascinating real-life characteristics of animals, such as how a chameleon changes colors and how a fly walks on the ceiling.  After exploring the robots you can go outside to the Science Park and float balls down The Rill, immerse yourself in the Water Dance exhibit and make amazing shapes with water at Water Bells.  The new Hughes Pavilion overlooking the Science Park offer visitors a respite from sun or showers and is the perfect place to have lunch.  Bring a picnic or purchase lunch from the King Arthur Flour bakers.  No longer do you need to leave the museum for lunch – King Arthur Flour’s offerings will include sandwiches, fruit, granola bars, chips, ice cream, cookies and cold beverages.  So stay at Breakfast on the Connecticut and take one day to explore the wonders of the Montshire – but don’t forget the towels (we will supply those), swimsuits and sunscreen!
