Arctic Ambitions: Captain Cook and the Northwest Passage Exhibition

Implementation of a traveling exhibition on James Cook's Third Voyage (1776-80), focusing on his travels around the Northwest coast and his attempt to find the Northwest Passage.

The Anchorage Museum, in partnership with the Washington State Historical Society and Cook Inlet Historical Society, will fabricate, and present a 7,500-square-foot exhibition on James Cook's Third Voyage to the Pacific Ocean, titled "Arctic Ambitions: Captain Cook and the Northwest Passage." The exhibition will open March 27, 2015 in Anchorage and run until September 11, at which time it will travel to the Washington State Historical Society in Tacoma. The exhibition will be part of the Municipality of Anchorage's Centennial Celebration. Although Cook spent time in southern seas en route to America, the prime focus of the exhibition will be the Northwest Coast, mainland Alaska, the Aleutian Islands, the Bering Sea, Siberia, Kamchatka, and the Arctic Ocean.
