Earth Explorers opens at Manitoba Museum (PROGRAMS)

Starting this weekend, visitors to the Manitoba Museum can experience some of the earth’s most remote and thrilling places, in person and with their smart phones.

“National Geographic Presents: Earth Explorers” highlights the planet’s spectacular eco-zones, polar regions, oceans, rain forests, mountains and caves, and the African Savanna.

“Earth Explorers gives insight into what drives us to explore and why we are determined to learn more about the planet we live on in order to preserve it for future generations,” said Manitoba Museum executive director Claudette Leclerc.

“We want people to leave the exhibit feeling inspired and even brave enough to seek out the undiscovered and the unexplained.”

The exhibition includes six interactive areas where guests can experience the methods employed by National Geographic to capture amazing images of the natural world.
