The Upland Tropical Rain Forest exhibit is temporarily closed through Fall 2022.

Upland Tropical Rain Forest (Temporarily Closed)

This immersive exhibit transports you to the heart of a South American rain forest.

The Upland Tropical Rain Forest exhibit will be temporarily closed until Fall 2022 as we replace the 684 panes of glass that make up the iconic pyramid that encloses this immersive exhibit. For more information on this project, read our press release.

Explore Life in the Rain Forest

Tropical birds fly, poison dart frogs hop, sloths hang and golden lion tamarin monkeys scamper among thousands of rain forest plants in Upland Tropical Rain Forest, a recreation of one of the most biologically diverse—and rapidly disappearing—habitats on Earth.
