Science and Survival at Fort Conger – A Polar Heritage Site in the Canadian High Arctic

Creator(s): Arctic Institute of North America

Built in 1881, Fort Conger — located in Nunavut’s Quttinirpaaq National Park — played a key role in international exploration during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This exhibit explores not only the history of the abandoned outpost but also the expertise of the Inuit, whose knowledge proved essential to many expeditions. Through more than 400 images, videos and virtual worlds, plus a gallery of 3-D images, Science and Survival at Fort Conger brings a part of High Arctic history to life.
