Outside-In is a special hands-on area of the Academy of Natural Sciences museum designed for younger children. There are live animals (including small mammals, turtles, snakes and lizards, fish, and insects), as well as artifacts (rocks and fossils, shells, bones and skins) and activities (games, puzzles, books, a fossil dig) that invite exploration and hands-on learning.

Volunteers help with hands-on activities, answer questions, and handle small live animals for visitors to touch. Through a structured training program you progressively add to your learning about the nautrual world and share this with museum visitors.

College students or adults seeking professional museum education experience are welcome to investigate volunteer internships with Outside-In.
