Catfish Planet is a hands-on, educational way for children and adults to view the underwater world of catfish. There are 3000 known species of catfish and more to discovery. With catfish making up 34 percent of freshwater fish, a lot can be learned from this whiskered fish. The exhibit was created by the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. Come check it out during normal business hours.
Every first and third Sunday of each month is devoted to Discovery Days. Come from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. for family fun activities like craft time, animal presentations and story time. Each child will receive a F.U.N. Passport that they can get stamped each time they come. Once they recieve 4 stamps they will win a prize and a F.U.N. certificate. Each month has a different theme so be sure to check them all out this summer. Schedule May- How Tweet June- Down by the Riverside July- Creature Features August- Creepy Crawlers
