Because it's There

Because it's There


The exhibition ‘Because it’s there’ will examine human exploration: the desire to go beyond the horizon, climb the mountain, venture out across the ocean, fly among the stars, to discover something just because it’s there (or rumoured to be there).
Discover the tools and machinery that made navigation and exploration possible and uncover the stories of the brave people who took bold risks in their pursuit of new discoveries.
