Bear-Ology is a black bear exhibit where you will uncover many truths about black bears and dispel myths. Visitors also have the opportunity to learn why the Coastal Plain of North Carolina has the world’s largest black bears and why we have the highest black bear densities on the planet!
Guests are greeted in the Lobby by a life-size African Lion where the adventure begins. The wildlife tour starts with North America on the west side of the Lobby and continues into the North America Gallery. Enter the Trapper's Cabin and step into a Safari Tent in Africa on the side. The museum tour leads back into the east side Lobby from the Multi-National room at the end of the tour.
