GET UP, TRY AGAIN, PUSH FURTHER! Welcome to the thrilling world of extreme sports. Visitors are challenged to explore some of the riskiest activities in the world.
Beyond Human Limits immerses visitors in a variety of engaging and exciting sports in their natural environments. They can virtually race the backcountry slopes, balance along a highline, or test their hang time endurance. Visitors of all ages will delight in experimenting with downhill slopes and imagining what will come next in the world of extreme sports.
Throughout the exhibition, passionate athletes explain their individual motivations, training, and resilience. Visitors can evaluate their own desire for thrill and adventure, then compare their sensation-seeking score to the featured athletes. Beyond Human Limits emphasizes that for extreme athletes facing risks is secondary to the personal fulfilment they find by pursuing their passions. Visitors will leave inspired to push themselves to their own personal limits.
Exhibit admission is free for museum members and included with regular museum admission of $5 for Seniors, Students and Youth and $6 for adults.
