WHAT LIES BENEATH: CANADIAN SHIPWRECKS OF LAKE SUPERIOR
This exhibit is travelling throughout Ontario and Manitoba in 2020, and is no longer available for booking.
As part of our exhibit, WATCH: The Sinking of the Algoma – Jerry Muskrat takes a dive into Lake Superior. Jerry Muskrat is on his raft with Snappy, pretending to be the Captain of a ship in a storm. He spots a message in a bottle. It’s from Captain Nemo, inviting Jerry to the bottom of Lake Superior to learn about the sinking of the SS Algoma. Nemo recounts the tale of how the pride of the CPR fleet hit a sudden storm on Nov 7th, 1885, and sank near the shores of Port Arthur, now called Thunder Bay. Jerry Muskrat’s Greatest Lakes Adventure! Join Jerry as he rows his way through his favourite cultural and historic destinations of the Great Lakes and Saint Lawrence Seaway in his series “The Greatest Lakes – a Jerry Muskrat™ Adventure!” on the Kidoons Network.
