Ever since explorers began searching for a Northwest Passage over 400 years ago, the Arctic has been a fascinating and important area of study, rich with drama, adventure, even tragedy. Using artifacts, images, audio-visual presentations, and art, Echoes in the Ice: History, Mystery, and Frozen Corpses examines Arctic exploration past and present, profiles the explorers involved in the search for the Northwest Passage, and decodes the mysteries of the lost Franklin Expedition of 1845. Starting June 8th
