Through immersive storytelling and concise descriptions of various plantlife, animals and human history, we are able to absorb the more accessible aspects of our natural history. However, it will take much more innovation and perhaps a renovation on the meaning of "museum" to full instill a feeling of ethical responsibility to the environment. People are willing to engage themselves in the huge and bold, yet skip over the placards filled with paragraphs about climate change or losses of ecology. This means that the exhibits themselves must take on the role of entertainment and education at once, without fully relying on the small square pieces of text to its side.
Exhibitions like this better integrate the relatable and the didactic: we find facts on our refrigerator, and in the windows to the outside, and within our cabinets rather than through instruction manuals or long-winded paragraphs attempting to inspire renewable energy. Through the practical we can attain the ideal.
