Survive the Amazon at New Museum Exhibit
DUBUQUE, Iowa - Piranhas, anacondas and eels. All can be found in the Amazon. Soon, all will be found at The National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium.
On Thursday, organizers announced a new exhibit called Amazon Voyage: Vicious Fishes & Other Riches. The interactive, bilingual (English and Spanish) exhibition will be March 3, through October 31, 2012. It will be offered free with museum admission. The exhibit mixes real scientific research, light humor, and whimsical artwork into a fun, interactive experience for visitors of all ages, particularly families with children ages pre-kindergarten and up.
"The Brazilian Amazon is one of the world's greatest rivers; full of exotic animals, plants, and cultures," said Jerry Enzler, the Museum's executive director. "We are very excited to share this wonderfully diverse river with our visitors."
"This exhibition brings the Amazon to life with beautiful art, hands-on experiences, great science, and fascinating stories," said John Sutter, the Museum's marketing director. "Amazon Voyage will bring a lively celebration of the Amazon to Dubuque."
