Telling the Arctic's story, on ice: The Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa teamed up with the National Film Board of Canada to present
Telling the Arctic's story, on ice: The Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa teamed up with the National Film Board of Canada to present "Beyond Ice," a unique interactive exhibit at the entrance to the museum's new Arctic gallery. Visitors who touch the ice pans trigger a short film, displayed on the ice, which showcases Arctic people, animals, plants, towns and sweeping landscapes. The Arctic Gallery, open to the public since June, is a multimedia experience guiding visitors through the region's ancient and recent past using hands-on displays and ample short videos featuring Inuit and non-Inuit storytellers. Those storytellers explain Inuit and Inuinnait culture and traditions, as well as modern research into climate change impacts on the northern environment and its peoples.
