What do a giraffe, a frog, a shark and a robin have in common? They all have a skeleton. More than that, they all have a backbone: they’re vertebrates. Visit the Museum of Zoology for a day of free hands-on activities inspired by skeletons. Explore our temporary exhibition entitled Growing a Backbone: The Rise of the Vertebrates. Follow our skeleton trail to take a closer look at the amazing animals on display. Handle real bones and see what they’re made of. Play with puzzles and stories, and find out how skeletons grow.
