The exhibition immerses 3-8 year old children and their families in the fascinating world of «Baby Animals», from birth to independence. The aim of the exhibition is to introduce the little ones to simple notions of animal biology and behavior and invite them to compare themselves with them to become aware of their own development.

With a museography of bright colors and welcoming materials, the exhibition is presented as an adventure playground with numerous corporal and sensory games and multimedia activities that invite you to touch, feel, imitate, observe, get excited and marvel at the baby animals.

Throughout the tour, divided into six stages -Birth, Threat and Protection, Learning, Vital functions, Development and Independence- children and their families will find 75 naturalized specimens, 9 multimedia activities, 30 audiovisual activities (real image and cartoons) and 13 educational and fun activities that will invite them, for example, to make a nest, to camouflage  to avoid predators, or to carry eggs on their back like the adult toad does.
