Amazon Voyage: Vicious Fishes & Other Riches


February 5-September 5, 2011

Kathleen and Curtis Gunn Gallery


All aboard! The voyage down the largest river in the World is about to begin at the WitteMuseum. The Amazon River, located in South America, accounts for 20% of all the world’s freshwater discharge into the oceans and is home to more species of fish than any other river in the world.


This exhibition takes visitors on an exciting journey through the diverse ecosystems, the vicious creatures known as the Seven Perils and the amazing people who inhabit the Amazon River. Through hands-on and fun interactives, original multimedia presentations, original artifacts, live fish, life-sized casts and much more, visitors will explore eight major exhibition areas: CaptainMo’s Boat, Piranha, Deep Channel, Sandy Bank, FloodedForest, FloodplainLake, Floating Home and the Encante Stage.


This journey is alive! Guests will also have the opportunity to watch live piranha feed, try to spot the camouflaged stingrays in their sandy tanks, crawl into an underwater viewing tunnel of a tetra fish tank and see several other species of live fish.


Welcome to the jungle.
