Since its founding in 1888, National Geographic has inspired explorers from around the world. Celebrate 125 years of vivid storytelling through stunning photography, film, and interactive experiences. Follow Geographic’s continuing exploration of world environments and cultures, from the top of Mount Everest to the remote Amazonian rainforests. Visitors will go behind the scenes with photographers on assignment, scientists in the field, and cartographers mapping the far corners of the Earth. From the first Society sponsored expeditions to the poles and Machu Picchu to James Cameron’s recent dive to the deepest spot on Earth, the Mariana Trench, the exhibition will feature exploration and ground breaking research.
