Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle said, “In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous.” At the Draper Museum of Natural History, we couldn’t agree more. Get an close-up look at some of our most popular residents, our magnificent birds of prey, golden eagle, great horned owl, red-tailed hawk, turkey vulture, a peregrine falcon, an American kestrel, a short-eared owl, a saw-whet owl, and a bald eagle. Daily shows, included with admission.
Daily Guided Tours
For those who want a more focused visit, our Education Department interpreters offer three guided tours daily through the summer focusing on highlights of the Center. For an additional fee, groups can pre-schedule a private tour, or for those of your group who want to join one of our daily guided tours, stop at the Guided Tours desk located just beyond the admission area.
