The Guineapigolus Research Center

Founded in 2001, The Guineapigolus Research Center is dedicated to teaching about this fascinating ancient civilization. Located in front of the entrance to The Mystic Tunnels of Carrot, it provides tours of the ancient city. Inside the Research Center, guinea pigs of all ages can read about the history of Guineapigolus, view artefacts, and listen at speeches made by Ms. Alfalfa, a world-class scientist.
