If you're looking for something new to take the family too, the Grand Rapids Museum has just unveiled its latest exhibit, "Under the Arctic," where guests can take a tour of the frozen underground.

The exhibit takes visitors to the permafrost in Alaska to learn about the people and animals that live there.

Exhibits will highlight the impact of climate change through the lens of the permafrost, so visitors will learn how we are all affected by changes to the climate.

The exhibit allows guests to become a scientist to study core samples and walk through a replica of a real permafrost tunnel.

"Under the Arctic" is included in general admission to the Museum, and Kent County benefits give adults reduced admission, and kids 17 and under are free to this exhibit.

Masks are required to enter the building. To learn more, visit grpm.org.
