Animal Care

Meet Our Animals!

Burpee Museum has a variety of live animals, including snakes, turtles, tegus, geckos, and lizards. We take pride in our animal care, and we believe that it is important for children to interact with animals in order to build a sense of connection, empathy, and care for wildlife and the environment. Stop by our third floor exhibits to visit them! We love to host "Meet the Animals" throughout the summer, so check out our calendar to see upcoming events!
