    The Niagara Parks Commission is pleased to welcome a new family-friendly, educational exhibit “Wild Ontario – A Celebration of Ontario’s Biodiversity,” that will be taking place at the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory from Saturday, April 29 to Sunday, June 11.

    Visitors will be introduced to various fascinating species of mammals, amphibians, birds, fish, reptiles and invertebrates, all native to this province. Interactive and bilingual displays will explain Ontario’s three different Ecozones: the Hudson Bay Lowlands, the Ontario Shield and the Mixed Wood Plains, as well as the unique regions and habitats that can be found within these Ecozones.

    From the Toronto Sun:

    An interactive museum that hopes to recreate the experience of sailing on board the Titanic may be coming to Canada.

    A group in Niagara Falls, Ont., has conditionally purchased land that would house the museum and is moving ahead with plans to launch an exhibit dubbed “Experience Titanic.”

    David Van Velzen, who’s spearheading the project, says the museum will differ from many similar efforts around the world by focusing on an interactive audience experience.

    From Niagara This Week:

    It is hoped a display of some tiny creations will be a big hit with visitors to Ripley’s Believe It of Not! Odditorium.

    Several micro sculptures by renowned artist Willard Wigan are now on display at the Clifton Hill attraction.

    “This is the smallest exhibit we have now,” said Ripley’s manager Mary Roberts. “Guests have been looking through the microscope, than looking at the pin to see if it’s actually there.”

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    There are a bunch of dead bodies inside an old baby food factory in Niagara Falls.

    And their caretakers invite the public to come and see.

    “You get to a certain age you think there are very few things that will make your jaw drop. This is one of them,” Linus Hand said.

    Hand, who co-owns the local theatre company Silver Mist Productions, has brought the world-renowned Bodies … The Exhibition to the former Gerbers and Niagara Falls Tourism building at Stanley Ave. and Highway 420.

    The building is now known as the Niagara Exhibition Centre.

    More than 15 million people have viewed the travelling exhibit since 2004, the year it started touring the world.

    Like I mentioned before, I found about the press day too late, so I wasn’t able to go. However, I have arranged to see the exhibit another time, so I’ll definitely write about it at that point.
