From oceans of sand to frozen deserts, Earth's most dynamic landscapes fill the giant screen with color and contrast. The Greatest Places takes audiences on a geographical odyssey to seven amazing locations — including Greenland's giant icebergs, Tibet's Chang Tang Plateau, and Iguazu's immense waterfall — that show nature's enduring power in high relief.
The film explores beautiful landforms, amazingly complex ecosystems, and rich cultures of indigenous peoples that are inseparable from the places where they live. Though diversity is the theme of The Greatest Places, the film reveals that nature, and human nature, are what unify us as a planet.
The Greatest Places is presented by the Science Museum of Minnesota in partnership with the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, the St. Louis Science Center, the Cincinnati Museum Center, and the Goto Optical Manufacturing Co., with major funding provided by the National Science Foundation.
