Exploration Place Exhibit
Survival: Are You Prepared?
It’s that time of year again when Exploration Place changes things up with a brand new exhibit. Officially open to the public today is Survival: The Exhibition. The museum at 300 N. McLean Boulevard had a sneak preview earlier this week for the new adventure themed exhibit that will stay open through April 24, 2022.
What can you expect?
Adventure, fun and science collide at Survival: The Exhibition. They invite you on an exhilarating, heart-pumping and daring journey of bravery and brains. Experience the thrill of exploration, gain an appreciation for the wonders of nature and prepare for the unexpected—all within an interactive, informative and safe space.
Survival: The Exhibition transports guests of all ages to the world’s most breathtaking scenery and awe-inspiring locales asking them the question: how can humans survive here? From the rainforest to the high mountains, from the extreme cold to the temperate forest, Survival: The Exhibition combines STEM concepts with hands-on challenges to empower you with the skills, know-how and confidence to survive any scenario.
Investigate, collaborate, problem-solve, play, build, collect and climb your way to becoming the ultimate survival expert!
Here are some quick pics of what you can expect.
I did a walk through before it went public and it’s a cool exhibit that really takes you on an adventure through the wild and what you need to do to survive.
Taking the adventure theme even further is their new Lava Challenge Adventure Course that takes you through a series of obstacles to see if you can skillfully pass the Lava Challenge. It’s a low ropes course where the staff will help you harness you and send you across six unique challenges. Your confidence and problem-solving skills are put to the test!
