What happened to January? If you’re a student on the University of Minnesota campus, welcome back and happy Spring semester. Winter break went by more quickly than usual here at the museum; but, we are excited to give you a peek at what we’ve been working on! Though we’ve been living through another Ice Age over the last couple of months, I hope you can look forward to celebrating spring fever with us by checking out these upcoming events around…
Be the first to see WAM’s new feature exhibition, Vanishing Ice.
Explore the icy landscapes of our world. View Chasing Ice, a documentary on global climate change. Engage with an environment that reveals your human contributions to our changing climate. Experience how explorers cross the Arctic with Dr. Aaron Doering and his team. From the sleds they pull with all their necessities to survive for months, to the tents they live in.
FREE admission. Small bites. Cash bar (WAM members receive a free drink).
