The polar night exhibition  is now open for public in both Tromsø and Anchorage (Alaska). Since the exhibition opened in Tromsø, a replica (of a reduced part of the exhibition) has been produced which went on tour in the US. From 8-10 May the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington arranged the Arcic Spring Festival. The festival had a range of stations where the audience could learn about science, culture and management in Arctic. Lena Aarekol of the Polar Museum Tromsø presented the Polar Night exhibition during the festival. Some days later HMK Harald V opened the exhibition on May 26th, in the Anchorage Museum. Lena Aarekol (Polarmuseet), Geir Johnsen (NTNU) and Jørgen Berge (UiT) had the pleasure of giving the king a guided tour around the exhibition that will stay open to the public until October 2015. In Norway, the exhibition is set to be displayed in both Svalbard Museum (spring 2016) and Vitenskapsmuseet in Trondheim (2017).
