Rochester Museum and Science Center, 657 East Ave., will hold its third annual Animal Week from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 18-26.
Three floors will be transformed into a place where visitors can explore animal adaptations such as camouflage, hibernation and flight with animal-themed, hands-on activities. Visitors will be able to design their own animal and learn about challenges animals face while trying to survive in their environment.
Representatives from Wildlife Defenders, World of Wildlife Educational Encounters and Seneca Park Zoo will bring various live animals and give presentations. The Carlson Inquiry Room, an area typically not accessible to the public, will be open so that visitors can experience the museum’s live snakes, lizards and frogs.
Animal Week is free with museum admission — $14 for adults, $13 for seniors and college students, $12 for ages 3-18 and free for ages 2 and younger.
