Cats & Dogs

  • Feature Exhibition

Field Trip Top


Show dogs or mutts, pure-breed cats or alley cats, guide dogs or search and rescue dogs... They fill our homes, our streets, our imaginations, and even some phrases. Cherished, feared, or ignored, they have been our companions for thousands of years.

But what do we really know about them?
How have they become so different from wild animals?
How do they perceive the world?
What do they feel?
Can they communicate?
Can they understand us?
How do we live together?

Rediscover the dogs and cats you thought you knew so well. Explore their world: there may be a few surprises in store...

Consider reserving a school workshop designed to complement this exhibition:
