Worlds of the Night

Worlds of the Night

At night, while many animals are asleep, others come to life. Who are they? Why do they not sleep? How do they manage to continue their activities in the dark? Some, living in the polar regions, have no choice in the matter. The Worlds of the Night looks at all these subjects, and more, using a path, a central zone and eleven immersive and interactive alcoves. Clearly, you will not be able to close your eyes at night!

A production of the Sherbrooke Museum of Nture and Science with the contributions of Heritage Canada, Atmosphere and FLIR.

The exhibition won the CASCADE AWARD 2017  for Best exhibit or show – small institution from the Canadian Association of Science Centres.
