Join us at the Delaware Museum of Natural History for another special exhibit from June 24th - September 4th! 

"The dark—a place of mystery. Sometimes scary, but always intriguing, darkness beckons exploration and represents the unknown. But it’s also a natural evolutionary selective pressure that has caused plants and animals to adapt to ecosystems like caves, the deep sea, the forest at night, and underneath the ground. Since prehistoric times, humans have sought to find utility in darkness, and have invented ways to acclimate to dark conditions.

In the Dark features immersive zones, enabling visitors to see and experience some of these dark and largely unseen worlds, including the ways people have reacted to darkness throughout history. Each diorama uses mechanical displays, life-size animal models and informational panels to surround visitors with the sights, sounds, smells and sensations of several dark ecosystems."
