Let your imagination run wild as you become a National Geographic explorer and embark on an epic adventure to discover new species, study animal behavior and learn about the important roles technology and innovation play in making and documenting these discoveries. The Museum of Science & History (MOSH) presents a highly interactive, hands-on exhibition, National Geographic Presents Earth Explorers, that allows visitors to learn and use methods employed by National Geographic explorers in the field.
The exhibition, sponsored by Community First Credit Union, features six themed and immersive environments, each with engaging areas to explore and activities to entertain and educate visitors. The six areas are Base Camp, Polar Regions, Oceans, Rain Forests, Mountains & Caves and African Savannas, bringing the unparalleled adventures of National Geographic to life. Visitors will learn about the daring men and women who venture into dangerous and remote parts of the world to discover new places, help protect our planet’s biodiversity and unearth new scientific discoveries.
In the exhibition, visitors will also: explore an Arctic cabin and test their ability to live in an ice-covered world; descend into the deep ocean in a 3-D submersible and explore how life forms at varying depths, even coming face-to-face with a great white shark; identify incredible insects from the Amazon while learning the benefits of biodiversity; ascend into the thin air of the Himalayas; and soar in a hot air balloon over the savanna while learning about the life of elephants and other mammals.
National Geographic Presents Earth Explorers is produced by Global Experience Specialists (GES) in partnership with National Geographic. The exhibition is on display through September 9, 2018, and is included with Museum admission.
