Journey to the wildest places on the globe in National Geographic Presents: Earth Explorers. Highlighting the Earth’s spectacular eco-zones—Polar Regions, Oceans, Rain Forests, Mountains and Caves and Savannas—this interactive exhibit brings the unparalleled adventures and discoveries to life and invites you to meet explorers who live these adventures every day.
Explore an arctic cabin and test your ability to stand living in an ice-covered world. Descend into the deep in a 3-D submersible and explore how life forms at varying depths, even coming face-to-face with a great white shark! Identify incredible insects from the Amazon while learning the benefits of biodiversity. Ascend into the thin air of the Himalayas. Soar in a hot air balloon over the Savanna, learning about the life of elephants and other mammals.
Earth Explorers will introduce you to the daring men and women who go farther than anyone else to discover new places, help protect our planet’s biodiversity and unearth new scientific discoveries—and you’ll be along for the wild ride!
This exhibit is not included in Museum Entry and requires a separate, timed-entry ticket available as part of Explorer ticket packages. Tickets for MSI members are $4.50.
