The narwhal, with its unique spiral tusk, has inspired legend in Inuit society and fascinated people across cultures for centuries. The Smithsonian traveling exhibition Narwhal: Revealing an Arctic Legend dives deep into the narwhal’s Arctic world to explore what makes this mysterious animal and its changing ecosystem so important. Through first-hand accounts from scientists and Inuit community members, the exhibition reveals how traditional knowledge and experience, coupled with scientific research, heighten our understanding of these animals—and our changing global climate.
Narwhal: Revealing an Arctic Legend was developed by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and organized for travel by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.
