An Excellent Adventure 

Exhibits: Charlie and Kiwi's Evolutionary Adventure

A new exhibit at the Montshire Museum of Science explores an old topic: evolution. During a 12-minute video, museumgoers meet a young boy named Charlie and his great, great, great, great grandfather. Together they explore why the flightless kiwi is still a bird. Drawings by award-winning children's book illustrator Peter Reynolds — of Judy Moody fame — bring the story to life. From there, kids can segue to related exhibits that engage them with a hands-on approach to science. Curious children will observe live birds, piece together puzzle-finches and their habitat, and brush away sand to find buried dinosaur bones.

Charlie and Kiwi's Evolutionary Adventure: Exhibition runs through May 6, Montshire Museum of Science, Norwich. Museum admission. Info, 649-2200, Montshire.org.
