ZOOM in on Nature at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum

Released on May 17, 2018


The Royal Saskatchewan Museum’s (RSM) newest exhibit, ZOOM, officially opens today.  Using innovative technology, including cutting edge imaging systems and 3-D printing, the RSM has created an exhibit which enables visitors to zoom in on some of nature’s best kept and beautiful secrets.


“I continue to be amazed by the diverse specialties and talents that make up the RSM team,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “This eye-popping exhibit was designed and built by RSM staff, and highlights some of the internationally-recognized research taking place here.  With ZOOM, the RSM has once again developed a fantastic new exhibit that is sure to inspire visitors with a deeper appreciation for nature and I know that citizens and tourists will be thrilled with their next visit.”

The Friends of the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, a registered charity and not-for-profit organization, have developed a sponsorship program for ZOOM.  K+S Potash Canada has come on board as the presenting sponsor, and RBC Dominion Securities is an interactive station sponsor.

“K+S Potash Canada is excited to support this innovative new exhibit,” K+S Potash Canada Communications Specialist Sydney Gossard said.  “We’re proud to support programs that provide educational opportunities for youth, and we know that this fascinating technology will provide all of ZOOM’s visitors with a new perspective on biodiversity and the world around us.”

ZOOM features 10 interactive stations that show bugs, skulls and feathers in a world that you never imagined is all around you.  Visitors will feel as if they are in an art gallery; each station features crisp and luminous images that highlight, with stunning clarity, the colours and detail nature bestows upon even the tiniest of creatures.  Each interactive component further explores the concept of zooming in on small organisms, allowing the public to further discover unique details about nature.

The RSM will also soon announce a variety of ZOOM related programs in addition to a variety of family-friendly programming and events taking place all summer long.  ZOOM sponsorship opportunities still exist.  For more information, contact Michelle Hunter at michelle.hunter@gov.sk.ca.

The RSM, located at 2445 Albert Street, is open daily from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.  Visit www.royalsaskmuseum.ca or call 306-787-2815.  Admission is by donation.
