World-Class Museum Opens
“After working on this project for so many years, it is exciting having a museum full of people enjoying the exhibits,” said Tellus Executive Director
Tellus’ four galleries – Weinman Mineral Gallery, Fossil Gallery, Science in Motion and Collins Family My Big Backyard – feature exhibits and activities that cannot be found under one roof anywhere else in the country.
An 82-foot-long Apatosaurus looms over visitors in the Great Hall. The replica Wright Brothers’ Flyer dominates the Science in Motion Gallery. A giant tree reaches to the ceiling in Collins Family My Big Backyard, inviting children of all ages inside to learn about weather.
Tellus is an expansion of the Weinman Mineral Museum, which received hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over
“Research has shown having students do experiential, hands-on activities helps to broaden their experience base. A visit to Tellus and participation in one of our programs helps them associate all of the science vocabulary and concepts they are learning,” Tellus Director of Education
The buzz about Tellus has grown from a whisper to a roar over the last few months. The museum’s E-newsletter membership has increased an average of 300 people a month for the last six months to more than 4,000 people. The grand opening gala, held on
“The public’s outpouring of support has been phenomenal,” said
