Visitors were able to travel across the vast Pacific Ocean to explore the islands and experience the culture of the people who call Oceania home in the exhibit Journey Through the Pacific.
Oceania is one name for the vast region that stretches across the Pacific Ocean from Australia to Hawaii and Easter Island. Although it is dominated by water, Oceania is made up of more than 10,000 islands and is home to more than 40 million people. These remote islands were some of the last places on earth to be settled by humans. This exhibit explored each island region, it’s culture, heritage and what makes it unique. Artifacts from the GRPM’s Collections represented each region.
This exhibit is brought to you by the citizens of Kent County and the voter approved 2016 millage.
