MeadWestvaco Treehouse

A remarkable permanent exhibit space, the MeadWestvaco Treehouse is just that: a fully-enclosed treehouse that extends beyond the traditional walls of the Museum to grant better access to the natural world. While inside, learn about environmental preservation, encounter live Honey Bees in their hive, see images of local flying squirrels captured on night-vision cameras, and of course do some bird watching!

NOTE: As of September 28, 2016, the bee colony has been temporarily removed from the Observation Hive due to a wax moth infestation. The bees will overwinter at a local apiary, with plans to reinstall in Spring 2017.
