THE LOST CITY OF Z EXHIBITION

THE LOST CITY OF Z EXHIBITION

Date: 25 October 2017 - 17 February 2018

For the first time a substantial exhibition, 'The Lost City of Z' on the legendary Torquay-born explorer, Col. Percy Harrison Fawcett, will chart his incredible search for The Lost City of Z in the Amazon Jungle, displaying fascinating items from the Museum’s archive - many for the first time.

Also on display will be props from the recently released and critically acclaimed Hollywood Film, The Lost City of Z, which has brought Col. Fawcett’s tragic story to a larger audience. The Museum was involved with the production of the film and some of the props were based on archive items housed from the Museum. This exhibition has been made possible by a Heritage Lottery Fund Sharing Heritage grant to create an exhibition.

There will be a series of explorer related talks and events to accompany the exhibition, as well as film screenings of 'The Lost City of Z' on Friday 6th October 2017, 6pm and Saturday 13th January 2018, 2pm.
