Myriad Botanical Gardens Features “The Jungle Book” Exhibit

If you are fond of classic children’s stories, you’re no doubt familiar with the story of a boy who was raised by wolves in the jungle. “The Jungle Book” is a well-loved tale that has been told for generations, and Myriad Botanical Gardens in Oklahoma City will be featuring an exhibit that will center on the characters and setting of the book.

“The Jungle Book” was written by Rudyard Kipling in 1894. It is about a boy named Mowgli who becomes an orphan in the jungle and is raised by wolves. After growing into a young boy, he is guided through the jungle by a panther named Bagheera and a bear named Baloo, and he eventually becomes the target of a Bengal tiger named Shere Khan.

The jungle setting of the story is a magical place, and The Children’s Garden at Myriad Botanical Gardens is opening its doors for a chance for families to experience it firsthand. “The Jungle Book” exhibit is open now and will run through May 22.

The exhibit offers various activities for children to enjoy, as well as crafts related to the story. There are also different displays representing the characters and other important aspects of the book.

The exhibit is open from 10am to 5pm. Admission is $6 for nonmembers or $10 for a Crystal Bridge and “Jungle Book” combo package. Admission is free for members and children 3 and under.
