EUGENE, Ore. -- The Museum of Natural and Cultural History opened their "Natural Athletes" exhibit Saturday.

The bilingual exhibit celebrates the power of track and field athletes before the Track and Field World Championships come to Eugene this summer.

It aims to educate and entertain by comparing world class athletes in the human world to those in the animal kingdom.

The museum combines science and sport, showing how top athletes would stack up against nature's best athletes,

Ann Craig, director of exhibitions for the museum, said it is fun for the whole family. 

"People just love the idea of something fun," she said. "It's really interactive so if you're bringing your kids over. There's something for every kid to do here -- to take a look at how all the different animals move but for them to get to try it too."

The university's human physiology department partnered with the museum for this exhibit.

The exhibit will last until the end of August. For more information click here
