Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum’s Popular Creature Feature is October 11

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – SEPTEMBER 15, 2015 – Ann Arbor, Mich. -- Get up close and personal with nature’s wildest creatures at the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum’s Creature Feature, on Sunday, October 11, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Now in its 13th year, Creature Feature tickets are $12 for Museum members, $15 for non-members, and available at

This annual celebration of creatures from across the globe features more than 70 animals ranging from owls to emus, caimans to chinchillas, massive insects to giant pythons, and much more. Attendees will interact with live animals from our featured presenter, Creature Conservancy, and from other local organizations including Leslie Science & Nature Center, Little Creatures Company, and more. 

“Creature Feature inspires awe and wonder about the natural world,” said Mel Drumm, executive director, Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum. “How many people ever get up close and personal with turtles, let alone a giant tortoise; and how many others ever see, let alone hold, a live armadillo? Creature Feature offers a unique chance to learn from experts and interact with animals that most people rarely, if ever, see.”

A sell-out event every year, Creature Feature also offers make-and-take crafts, light refreshments, and access to other Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum exhibits. The Museum is proud to partner again this year with Lake Trust Credit Union as Creature Feature’s premier sponsor. Lake Trust’s Ollie the Owl will be at Creature Feature again this year, entertaining families.

"Lake Trust Credit Union and Team Lake Trust are committed to supporting organizations who enhance the communities around them,” said Chris Pearson, Lake Trust Credit Union vice president, community development. “The Ann Arbor Hands On Museum is a wonderful community partner, allowing Team Lake Trust  to volunteer their time in a meaningful and fun way.  We now mark our calendars well in advance and look forward to the "Creature Feature," and to supporting the Museum's mission to educate children and their families."
