Famous for producing and publishing some of the world’s most recognizable photographic images, The National Geographic’s exploration of nature and the global environment has inspired generations of photographers. World of Mystery will take viewers through four enigmatic worlds, exploring the relationship between nature and civilization through photography.
The exhibition begins with Mystery of the Ancient World, which features stunning photographs of some of the world’s most intriguing ancient sights, many of which continue to confound historians to this day. From the ancient to the ultra hi-tech, Mystery of the Universe sends viewers into outer space, while Mystery of the Wild, brings them back down with a journey through earth’s breathtaking untouched landscapes. The Mystery of the Water World plunges into deep sea exploration with the alien like creatures that inhabit the unexplored depths of earth’s oceans and the technology that allows scientists to study them.
