Forever Forest

Forever Forest

Fourth Floor | Kirby Science Discovery Center

Climb a tree, build a home and more while exploring the forest’s connection with our world. The 2,000-square-foot Forever Forest exhibition is designed to teach children and adults how their everyday lives are connected to forests, through the ways they live, work and play. 

Here are just a few activities in Forever Forest:

  • Travel through a forest and interact with creatures by climbing, crawling and sliding through logs and tree limbs.
  • Experience a kid-size replica of a Union Pacific engine and railcar to show how products move across the country
  • Harvest trees using mini grapple skidders and a pretend saw mill
  • Build a miniature home under construction in which children can help finish by adding siding, molding and other details.

This exhibition is recommended for children up to age 8 and their families.
