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.
Echoes in the Ice promotes the rich connections between science, technology, and culture in a unique and educational manner.
A co-production of Gone West Productions and the Canada Science and Technology Museum, with the generous support of Natural Resources Canada and Parks Canada Agency. This exhibit is officially open from June 8th, 2013 until September 2013.
