Lots of pictures and artifacts featuring cats. Among the highlights: a chart showing how to tell the room temperature based on a cat, an exhibit listing all the different feline species, pictures of cats doing karate moves with each other

We were a little hesitant about going as we had heard some not so nice reviews BUT we decided to go and so pleased we did. The displays are very good for both adults and children.
