Let your imagination run wild with Reading Zoo, an exhibit inspired by animal stories, natural habitats and highlights from Brooklyn Children’s Museum’s collection of animal taxidermy.
Journey with us through three different North American environments— the freezing Arctic, the cool Northeast Coast, and the lush Northeast Forest. In each of these places, you’ll find taxidermied animals to explore, books that feature our animal friends to read, challenges to match the tracks and scat that animals leave behind, and opportunities to create and act out your own original stories. Visit the RZ research station to learn more about faraway places on the globe and the amazing animals found there.
Reading Zoo was made possible with generous support from NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, NY State Council on the Arts, and Ikea. Special thanks to our friends at Brooklyn Public Library’s Brower branch who selected the storybooks featured.
