The North Bay museum reopened on Wednesday, according to curator Naomi Hehn, and Science North’s traveling exhibit — the science of Guinness World Records — has been extended through Feb. 25.

The museum is open Wednesday to Friday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The museum is operating at 50% capacity. Masks must be worn and visitors aged 12 and over must have proof of vaccination.

The Callander Bay Heritage Museum and the Alex Dufresne Gallery are also open.

The gallery will present a new art exhibition, Revenant: Tie to Water by Alix Boz until February 26.

There will be a vernissage on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the presence of the artist.

The exhibition explores the relationships between gestural body language and visceral emotional connections to bodies of water and their ability to reveal identity landscapes.

Revenant is a return to the artist’s natural modes of visual expression to release the immaterial link to water. Voz uses painting, photography and sculptural paintings to negotiate freedom of self-expression and the undeniable personal appeal of natural lakeside environments.

This show is supported by the Ontario Arts Council.

The opening hours of the museum and the art gallery at this time will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Appointments are available on Tuesdays or Wednesdays by calling or emailing ahead.

Visitors must wear a mask and social distancing is required.

It is the second iteration of an exhibit presented in 2016, and its popularity has inspired the museum to repeat the idea.
