This week, two of our Chicago museum clients opened educational and engaging exhibits that tell the story of climate change in different ways.

Steve Johnson of the Chicago Tribune explains:

At a museum on the South Side of Chicago, newly mounted photographs and video detail the disappearance, due to rising temperatures, of glaciers that are hundreds of years old. It’s a breathtaking display of natural beauty, fading.

At one on the North Side, a new exhibit demonstrates the effects of climate change on our homes and surroundings. Short version: It’ll be fine so long as you prepare for floods, fires and extreme weather patterns.

Both exhibits – “Extreme Ice: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers” at the Museum of Science & Industry, and “Our House: Rethinking Home in a Changing Climate” at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum – are included with museum admission.
