He’s old, but he’s a fast mover! Take a walk with Gus The Tortoise, a gopher tortoise, who at 98 years old, is older than your grandparents… and probably even older than your great grandparents!

Gus has been a resident of the Museum of Natural History for over 70 years and comes out for a public stroll every day at 3:00 pm. When you join Gus for a walk, you may get a chance to feed him some yummy lettuce and get up close to examine his beautiful shell.

The best days to walk with Gus are the days when the museum is really quiet, so please note that if the museum is super-busy, or if Gus isn’t feeling it, the walk may be canceled or postponed. He’s the boss!

The Gus walk is included in the museum admission price… and don’t forget – the museum will have FREE admission during the months of July and August 2021!
