With its dedication to showcasing the stories of the world, it has earned a reputation for having some of the most iconic and recognizable photographs that define the times. The National Geographic archive is in a league of its own, inspiring generations of photographers, both professional and amateur.

Exploring humanity, nature and the cosmos through a lens, the exhibition of mysteries is divided into six sections: History of National Geographic; Mystery of Ancient Civilization; Mystery of the Universe; Mystery of the Wild; Mystery of the Water World; and the Deep Sea Challenge Project.
From the epic brilliant-white climbs to the peak of Mount Everest and excursions deep into the fathomless depths of outer space, to life in the heart of the Congo jungle and diving leagues under the sea in the Great Abaco Island, the awe-inspiring photos on display at the “World of Mystery” exhibition are enough to compel anyone to put a halt to their seemingly mundane lives and take to a life of globetrotting.
