Sir John Franklin's second ship HMS Terror was reported found today.  Erebus was the first - that was located in 2014, about 100 km away from the current site.

Over the next three years, the Franklin Expedition, and the evolving discoveries around it, will be accessible to scores of Canadians through pop-up displays and programming hosted by this national network. Participating museums have the opportunity to expand the Franklin Museum Network?s reach into their communities, including sharing the displays themselves.

In winter 2016, the ROM will distribute the displays to the venues. Visitors can expect information on the latest discoveries and research to be featured on the double-paneled displays, as well as dynamic digital components. Enlightening programming, an evolving webpage, and enriching support material may augment each museum?s presentation.


This will be really worth it.  Great idea.
