The exhibition is arranged to take visitors on a fun, sensory, and interactive journey through three different topics:
This is an active space where visitors compare their own physical skills to those of the animals, such as speed, agility, capacity to jump. They discover the different range of canine and feline body shape types and observe their characteristics.
Visitors are plunged into an exhibit that puts them on the level of an animal; they are invited to look, listen, and feel like a dog or cat, and to benefit from unique immersive experiments. Emphasis is also placed on animal communication, their expression of emotions, and on human interpretation of their behavior.
Dogs and cats are prevalent in our homes, on our streets, and in our culture. This final section shows visitors the nature of our relationship with these animals over time and the important role they play today in our society.
