Check out this interactive exhibit

The Ones We Met: Inuit Traditional Knowledge and the Franklin Expedition, which is on display at the Bradley Museum Anchorage Galleries from now until Apr. 16, “explores the historic Franklin Expedition through the lens of Inuit traditional knowledge.”

The exhibit features an audio-visual station and animated map and displays the retellings of Inuit traditional knowledge (Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit), and the modern archaeological research that helped to locate the wrecks of ships from the Franklin Expedition (Sir John Franklin’s 1845 attempt to locate the Northwest Passage).

Go on a photo adventure at Illumi

Those who haven’t gotten a chance to check out this light, sound and multimedia festival called Illumi might be happy to know that the event will now remain open until the spring.

The event is located at 7174 Derrycrest Dr. and features more than 20 million lights separated into 14 universes. Each universe features music and its own theme, making it a fun and immersive experience for a date, family outing or even solo night out.
