GREENSBORO, NC – The Greensboro Science Center (GSC) is excited to announce a new traveling exhibit.

Cats & Dogs, designed by La Cite in Paris, offers a sensory and interactive journey largely devoted to games and simulations. There is nothing better than putting yourself in an animal’s place in order to understand them better and decode their behavior. The exhibition is arranged to take visitors on a fun, sensory and interactive journey. Using colors, materials and selected furnishings, different scenes are created, consisting of distinct environments that let visitors experience each universe.

In their skin. This is an active space where visitors compare their own physical skills to those of the animals, such as speed, agility, capacity to jump. They discover the different range of canine and feline body shape types and observe their characteristics.

In their heads. Plunged into a space decorated to put us on a level with the animals, visitors are invited to look, listen and feel like a dog or cat, with unusual immersive experiments. Understand how they communicate, interpret their emotions and decrypt their behavior.

In our society. Dogs and cats fill our homes, our streets and even our culture. This section shows visitors the nature of our relationship with these animals over time, and the important role they play today in our society.

Cats & Dogs will run from December 1, 2022 – May 7, 2023. GSC members can enjoy a special sneak peek on December 1 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. and the exhibit opens to the public at 12 p.m. on December 1. Admission to Cats & Dogs is included with a general admission ticket or membership to the GSC.

Members of the media working on assignment are invited to take photos and video on Tuesday, November 29 or Thursday, December 1 and are asked to reach out to the GSC’s Marketing Department at rrobinson@greensboroscience.org or by calling (336) 288-3769 x1305 to confirm your attendance.
