Nanaimo Museum Exhibit

Expedition Arctic

Expedition Arctic is a thrilling and awe inspiring new feature exhibit  on loan from the Canadian Museum of Civilization. The Canadian Arctic Expedition of 1913-1918, was one of the world’s last greatest journeys  of discovery before the age of modern communication and airborne technologies.

The exhibit highlights stories of adversity and discovery  as an international collective of scientists, sailors, guides, and hunters forged through remote arctic terrain in the name of science.
 
Visitors will have the chance to view a multitude of artifacts from the expedition, in addition to archival photographs and maps showcasing the expedition’s journey. The exhibit also hosts a variety of interactive features which enable visitors to “become” a member of the expedition.

The exhibit runs from August 15th – November 2nd.
