Earth World at St. Paul

Discover Minnesota’s Unique Habitats Up Close

Imagination and fun collide in this immersive exhibit that highlights Minnesota’s forest, prairie, and wetland environments, and the animals within them. Earth World encourages children’s social play while promoting empathy for the natural world.

Become an ant in the anthill and experience life in a society where existence relies on teamwork. This is just one of the many ways children can grow skills that benefit them in the anthill of life.

Playing in Earth World contributes to the development of essential lifelong skills such as:

  • Confidence when trying out something new, such as exploring dim tunnels out of a parent’s view.
  • Collaboration when working together with other ants to keep the ant hill home humming.
  • Communication when expressing excitement or sharing thoughts with others while playing in the stream.
