First Children's Museum for Antarctica!

I am happy to report that I have accepted the position as Executive Director of the first children's museum in Antarctica, The Antarctic International Children's Museum.

While plans are still in process, the museum will include both the world's largest IMAX theatre (the dome will be constructed entirely of ice!) as well as the world's best kid-sized grocery store exhibit (in keeping with the Antarctic theme, the "store" will be stocked with 15 varieties of artificial fish and simulated canned goods.)

Other planned exhibitions will be an iceberg climbing structure, a (frozen) water play area, and a community-minded exhibition developed entirely by penguins.

Planning and construction of the state-of-the-art Antarctic International Children's Museum would not be possible without the generous contributions of Doctor Victor Fries.

For more information about the project, or to find out about employment opportunities, please visit our website.

Thank you so much for your messages of support and concern regarding my recent abduction by aliens, time travel excursions, and the reinstallation of the official planetary status for Pluto. (It's been a busy day!)

It was only through your concerted efforts (and a container ship load of Lucky Charms cereal!) that the proper steps were taken to ensure my eventual release.

Unfortunately, recent events have caused the founding board of the Antarctic International Children's Museum to revoke my contract as Executive Director, and as part of our severance agreement I am forbidden from any further discussion of this matter.

My understanding is that a new executive search will be conducted under the auspices of the McMurdo Research Station, and those interested should direct their inquiries there. Dr. A. Preel-Fewles is the direct contact.

On the positive side, I am now immediately available to discuss new exhibit design, development, or consulting projects with interested parties.
