Established in 1957, the Natural Science Center of Greensboro is designated a science museum and zoological park. Today, the center houses several interesting animals. The center has evolved from a place with a small petting zoo and some taxidermy animals and cast replicas to a place involved in saving and protecting species as well as educating the public on the needs of animals and their habitats.
The animal discovery zoo is open daily from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. If you are interested in visiting this summer, here is a partial list of animals that you can see. From an anteater to tigers to rare Javan gibbons, there is so much to see here. The aquarium with penguins and sharks is a fabulous addition. You ought to try to visit this summer. It is a great place to spend the day and it is expanding before our eyes.
