Resurgo Place Presents “Worlds of the Night”

 

Resurgo Place is delighted to host a new bilingual travelling exhibition, Worlds of the Night, produced by the Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science. The exhibition will be on display from January 26, 2019 to April 21, 2019. Access to the exhibition is included with regular admission rates.

 

The best stories are told at night, when the atmosphere is charged with mystery and your mind is ready for a roller coaster of emotions. Wander in the dusky ambience of Worlds of the Night and discover what happens in your brain but also outside in the wild when the sun is out. The exhibition uses both dimmed and glowing light atmospheres to provide a mysterious and exciting experience while learning about astonishing night facts. Kids will finally have the opportunity to “stay up all night”! They will also “camp under the stars”, play hide-and-seek in a maze and play with desert (plush) animals.

Begin your adventure in the bedroom, where you will have scientific explanations about your biological clock, sleep phases and night-vision. Continue your visit through the night maze, which is bustling with life! Being nocturnal has its benefits: less competition for resources and a decreased risk of being preyed on by other daytime animals. Nonetheless, animals must have developed special skills to live in the dark. The night is often associated with the fear of the unknown (or unseen!) and scary stories have been passed on by collective memory.

The exhibition was produced by the Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science with the financial contribution of the Museum Assistance Program from Canadian Heritage.
