Disheveling - An ExtraordinHAIRY Exhibition!  
New travelling exhibition at Resurgo Place


                                                                                
MONCTON — Resurgo Place is pleased to host Disheveling, an interactive and bilingual travelling exhibition that will be on display until January 7, 2018. Visitors will get to know nature to a hair. Humans, plants, and animals will show their true colours and present their greatest assets, their hair. Access to the exhibition is included with paid admission.

In a funny and shaggy setting, Disheveling provides an overview of the integumentary system, with content divided into three zones, covering anatomical characteristics, fur, and human hair. Two approaches are used to comb through the science of hair. The first is intended for more inquisitive visitors, and is mainly composed of texts, photos, and samples to observe. The second is intended for those with broader interests, and is composed of fun and educational activities. The younger crowd will certainly have fun playing in the grooming salon.

This exhibition was produced by the Sherbrooke Nature and Science Museum. The project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada, Heritage Canada, Museum Assistance Program and Télé-Québec.
 
Resurgo Place is located at 20 Mountain Road in Moncton. Hours of operation are Tuesday to Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Resurgo Place is open until 8 p.m. on the last Thursday of every month.
