A traveling exhibition, Treasures of NOAA’s Ark will explore the history of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and how the agency, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, has impacted people across the nation and world. As the organization has evolved and grown over the years, NOAA has become an international leader on scientific and environmental issues. Treasures of NOAA’s Ark will feature artifacts like 18th-century maps and early scientific instruments. The exhibition will highlight NOAA’s legacy of science, service, and stewardship and will explore how we are all connected to the environment.
