Echoes in the Ice: Finding Franklin’s Ship
March 15, 2019 to June 8, 2019
Ever since explorers began searching for a Northwest Passage over 400 years ago, the Arctic has been a fascinating and important area of study, rich with drama, adventure, and even tragedy.
Using artefacts, images, audiovisual presentations, and art, Echoes in the Ice: Finding Franklin’s Ship examines Arctic exploration past and present, profiles the explorers involved in the search for the Northwest Passage, and decodes the mysteries of the Franklin Expedition of 1845, when an entire crew vanished in the Arctic during an ill-fated search.
See the exhibition from the Canada Science and Technology Museum at the Alberni Valley Museum which started March 15! The Alberni Valley Museum is one of only two museums to host this exciting travelling exhibition. Be sure to check it out!
