  Man the Explorer
Man and the Polar Regions

Visitors to the Man and the Polar Regions display in the Man the Explorer complex will see for themselves what the Artic and Antartic - and the Artic people are like.

At the entry aera the visitor has an opportunity for general fact-finding.

In the next stage, blasts of cold polar air bring realism as visitor-explorers emerge from an ice-tunnel and view Polar scenes and phenomena.

One exhibit shows why the Polar regions are cold. The South Pole is revealed as a continent with no population: the North Pole as an ocean central to many of the world's peoples.

Another display shows that if the ice of the antartic were to melt, seas would rise so much that the shape and the size of other continents would change.

Later, in striking contrast to the ships and sleds of the early Polar explorer and the kayak of the eskimo, visitors counter a submarine amidst Artic ice.

An intriging exhibit shows what happens when an artic air mass meets warmer air.

The Carousel Theater provides an exciting 18 minute film visit to the Polar regions. A final exhibit poses questions about their future.
