Date of publication: 26.09.2012, 12:12

A trip around the world with the Arts Factory.
We would like to invite you to a historic exhibition "With Forsters and Cook to the World's End". It's a fascinating trip around the world, which was held by two great Poles, world famous travelers and explorers - Johann Reinhold and Georg Adam Forster accompanying captain James Cook on his second voyage of discovery and research. The exhibition brings the story of a prominent family Forster, that came to the Republic of Poland in the seventeenth century and settled in Tczew at the turn of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Born and raised in Tczew John Reinhold Forster and his son George Adam with their discoveries significantly influenced the development of science. Welcome to this unique exhibition, through which we would like to remind the residents and visitors of Tczew of our great compatriots' achievements. Scenes from the life of both Forsters and the people they discovered will feel you into the atmosphere of the era and the fascinating journeys of discovery. We even copied a part of the sailing ship HMS Resolution, on which the journey was taken by Forsters and Cook. The exhibition is enriched by original artifacts and modern multimedia techniques. Interactive floor and a globe, computers with educational game for children and young people are an additional attraction.
The patronage of the exhibition was taken by: Bogdan Borusewicz - Marshal of the Senate of the Republic of Poland, Mieczysław Struk - Marshal of Pomorskie Voivodeship , Mirosław Pobłocki – the President of Tczew, Józef Puczyński local government officer in Tczew.
