Highly interactive science-meets-art exhibition explores the 39 beautifully uncanny birds-of-paradise, extravagant birds that have inspired a recent social media craze. A science exhibition, art show and natural history display in one, Birds of Paradise takes visitors on an expedition to a New Guinea rainforest to witness the spectacular plumage and dazzling dance moves of the family of birds known as birds-of-paradise.

Through beautiful National Geographic photography, follow the adventures of two determined researchers who made 18 trips to New Guinea over 8 years to complete the first survey of all 39 known species of birds-of-paradise. The video and photographs they brought back, combined with the exhibition artifacts and interactive experiences, provide exciting learning opportunities for visitors of every age.
