Wild Music

This exhibit is now closed.

Whales compose, bullfrogs chorus, songbirds greet the dawn, and people everywhere sing and dance. In Wild Music, you'll explore evidence for the biological origins of music through interactive exhibits and sound experiences. Immerse yourself in three different environments: hunt for sounds of forest creatures and explore music inspired by nature; investigate diverse sounds of animals that live in the sea, as well as the sounds of underwater earthquakes and cracking ice; and listen to songs inspired by physical activities such as hauling nets, moving logs, and pounding grain that require a number of people to move in unison. That and much more will captivate visitors of all ages in the world of wild music.

Wild Music is a production of ASTC, the Science Museum of Minnesota, and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro School of Music, with major funding from the National Science Foundation and additional support from Harman International and NEC Foundation of America.
