Arctic Voices

Canterbury Museum

The Arctic is a place of rapid change and despite its seemingly remote location, the Arctic is connected to all of us. The new special exhibition Arctic Voices takes you on a journey to this frozen Northern region.

Arctic Voices uses interactive experiences, photos, videos and real specimens to convey that the Arctic is more than just snow – it is land, water, and ice. It is home to people and a surprising diversity of wildlife. It is a place of rapid change being studied and monitored by scientists. Find out what affects the Arctic and in turn, how the Arctic has an impact on the whole planet.

Pounce, hop, push and crawl like an Arctic animal as you explore one of the planet's harshest environments. Come face to face with a polar bear. Travel with scientists as they catch and tag Arctic whales, and then go on a garden tour to see how plants have adapted to survive and thrive in this harsh environment. Listen to stories from the people who inhabit this region, as they share their knowledge about the land and their unique culture. You can even try throat singing, a traditional art with modern applications.

Arctic Voices is co-produced by Science North, one of Canada's largest and most respected science centres, and the Canadian Museum of Nature, Canada's national museum of natural history and natural sciences.
