Additional Information

In keeping with a reverence for the environment, four indigenous habitats surround the museum: a hardwood forest, wetlands, meadowlands, and traditional croplands. Uncarved rocks and boulders, known as "grandfather rocks," greet visitors at the entrance to a flowing water feature, which cascades over boulders into a stream ending in a circular pond at the east entrance of the museum. More than 36,000 trees, shrubs, and other plants belonging to150 species make this surrounding landscape a wonderful prelude and follow-up to visitors' museum experience.
