To help slow the spread of COVID-19, the museum's public spaces are temporarily closed. In the meantime, enjoy the museum from home and watch for updates on our reopening plans.
Hightail it to the museum for a track & field competition like no other—with cheetahs, kangaroos, chimps, and other mammals all going for gold! From the javelin throw to the high jump, learn which animals would triumph on the track, and explore the amazing adaptations that make it all possible. Through colorful displays and interactive stations, you’ll delve into TrackTown culture, learn about health and fitness research happening at the University of Oregon, and be inspired to move your body toward optimal wellness. On view through August 30, 2020
