Listen to Michale Lang (Executive Director, Whyte Museum), discussing
the Inquiring Minds exhibition:
Inquiring Minds is just one of the sections in the new Gateway to the Rockies exhibition being developed by the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies. We want your input and feedback on this permanent (ten year life) exhibition that we are planning to open at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies in the spring of 2012. Tell us what you think of this and the other concepts and stories featured here. Let us know how you think we could make this exhibition more interesting. Please keep in mind that this is a draft of the storyline, not the finished product. As the stories develop, information will be updated.
The latter half of the 19th century, the era of romanticism, brought the inquiring minds of scientists and naturalists and the artistic eyes of painters and photographers. Mary Vaux, and Charles Doolittle Walcott and Mary Schaffer came seeking glaciers, wildflowers, fossils and peace.
