In the wild world around us, everything is connected. Curious Connections in Nature delves into these connections through hands-on activities, multi-media displays and specimens from the Museum’s collection.

The exhibition highlights symbiosis in our bodies, our backyards and beyond.

Discover the role of the prairie dog in Colorado’s grasslands. Learn about the microbes we host in our bodies. Explore the amazing world of lichens, diatoms, and much more. The scientists who study these animals are profiled in the exhibit and you can learn about their important work.

Curious Connections was produced by the CU Museum of Natural History at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Museum Admission and 3D Film tickets are only available for purchase in person.
