Resilient Venice: Adapting to Climate Change

Temporary Exhibit

This pilot gallery is at the Museum of Science for a limited time. It highlights the first of three World Heritage Sites featured in a traveling exhibition debuting in 2023, transporting you to Venice, where you can explore how sea level rise caused by climate change threatens this legendary city.

Step into an immersive 180° panoramic view of St. Mark’s Plaza and experience for yourself how the rising waters impact the city. Then test different strategies for protecting coastal cities and infrastructure in a digital and interactive table experience. See how climate change is already affecting Venice and take an active part in protecting the city with additional interactives like installing doorway barriers to protect a gelateria from localized flooding and exploring a model of a section of the lagoon-wide MOSE barrier system built to protect the entire city.

Experience how, by working together, we can implement solutions that offer hope for adapting to the effects of climate change.

Resilient Venice: Adapting to Climate Change is made possible by the generous support of Bloomberg Philanthropies.

This exhibit was developed in collaboration with our creative partner, Iconem, who provided the 3-D scans, images, and post-production of the Venice assets.
