Positioned at the top of the world, the Arctic Circle makes up about 4% of the Earth’s surface. Currently comprising of numerous countries, various arctic animal species, and home to over 4 million people, this area has been inhabited by people for thousands of years. Only in recent times have detailed and recorded explorations taken place in efforts of finding passages through it or setting historic milestones within it. The Mildred Westervelt Warner Transportation Museum is proud to present Chronicles of the Arctic Circle as our 2020 - 2021 Winter exhibition. Come explore the wilds of the beautiful and dangerous North through the stories and accomplishments of the past.
