Happening at Fernbank Museum of Natural History through March 15, 2014
Journey to the vibrant underwater world of the mightiest animals on Earth.
Did you know that a blue whale is the same size as a 737 airplane, or that its tongue alone weighs more than a whole elephant? Did you also know that gray whales migrate over 12,000 miles a year, farther than any other mammal known?
Plunge into the mysterious world of whales and explore their relationship with humans. Featuring a unique blend of science and storytelling, this interactive exhibition is filled with whale songs, traditional Maori legends from the South Pacific, beautiful artifacts, enormous whale skeletons up to 58-feet-long, and unique experiences such as climbing through a life-sized model of whale heart as big as a car.
