Animal Gibberish: Subtitled for Humans Opening Soon at the Wellington County Museum and Archives

Posted On Monday July 19, 2021

ABOYNE, ON - Uncover the secrets of animal language in Animal Gibberish: Subtitled for Humans, a new exhibit at the Wellington County Museum and Archives. Running from July 23 to September 26, 2021, this exhibit was developed by the Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science with contributions from Heritage Canada.

“Visitors of all ages will enjoy this immersive experience,” says Hailey Johnston, Curator. “Animal Gibberish uses digital technology, sounds, games, and interactive elements to explore how animals communicate with one another and with humans.”

Animals use many different ways to convey simple messages like “I like you,” “Danger!” or “I’m hungry.” Visitors will discover who does what and learn to send messages just like animals do in this unique hands-on exhibit.

The Wellington County Museum and Archives is located on Wellington Road 18 between Fergus and Elora. All patrons will be screened prior to entry and are required to wear a mask or face covering at all times. The galleries are open weekdays from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm and 1:00 to 5:00 pm on weekends and holidays. Admission by donation.
