Wild Weather
May 29, 2021 - December 31, 2021



HOLIDAY HOURS: MDWFP's Mississippi Museum of Natural Science & the LeFleur's Bluff Playground will be closed on Dec. 24-26, 2021 and Jan. 1, 2022.

This exciting, highly interactive exhibit illustrates severe weather as a powerful and unpredictable force.

Visitors of all ages will be immersed in the science of severe weather. Delve into current severe weather science, discover cutting edge technology, and investigate the stories of scientists, forecasters, and passionate enthusiasts. You'll leave feeling like you've been saturated in severe weather elements.

Eight exhibit zones lead you through a series of Wild Weather experiences to gain a better understanding of the science behind severe weather, emerging technologies, and forecasting techniques and hear the stories of people who are working to better understand and mitigate severe weather impacts.

From thunderstorms to summer heat waves, hurricanes to blizzards, uncover the science behind the weather all around us and learn how exciting new discoveries are unraveling many of weather’s mysteries.

Fly through the eye of a hurricane, create a mini-tornado and dance up a storm as the weather around you responds to your movements, and get blown away in a staged hurricane photo op.

This exhibit is included with museum admission or MS Museum of Natural Science Foundation Membership.
