The award-winning interactive exhibition, 1001 Inventions, opened in the US capital on the 3rd of August 2012, introducing brand new audiences to the Golden Age of Muslim Civilization. 1001 Inventions is a global educational initiative that promotes awareness of scientific and cultural achievements from the ‘Golden Age’ of Muslim Civilisation and how those contributions helped build the foundations of our modern world.
1001 Inventions has drawn millions of visitors at blockbuster residencies in London, Istanbul, New York and Abu Dhabi. The Greek island of Santorini, also called Thira, is known for the whitewashed houses and churches perched along its volcanic cliffs.
In a ritual that has taken place for centuries, an expectant assemblage awaits a dramatic entrance by performers under darkening skies in the Herodes Atticus Theater in Athens. Rock climbers in the know refer to the Greek island of Kalymnos as "Kaly." Climber-friendly formations on its towering beachside cliffs have made this Aegean jewel an international climbing destination since the mid-1990s.
At one time, there were 24 peak-top monasteries in the region of Meteora in central Greece. Greece's Santorini Island was once aptly named Calliste, meaning "most beautiful." Its cliffside towns, with colorfully painted houses overlooking a crystal blue lagoon, are considered to be among the most picturesque on Earth. From above, the glassy blue waters of the Navajo Beach lagoon on Greece's Zakinthos island make boats appear to float on air. In the ancient monastic community of Mount Athos in northern Greece, Eastern Orthodox Christian monks live much as their brethren did a thousand years ago. Evzones, elite members of the Greek Presidential Guard, are tasked with protecting the Presidential Mansion and the Greek Parliament. The mineral-filled soils on Paxos are ideal for growing olives, and groves literally blanket the hills of this Ionian island. Low rainfall, poor soil, and a diminishing workforce have caused the agricultural sector in many parts of Greece to stagnate.
The National Archaeological Museum in Athens is Greece’s largest museum, with over 20,000 exhibits.

Many Canadian farmers are rapidly shifting to cultivating canola, or rapeseed, seen here in Quebec’s lower St.
Niagara Falls is as popular in Canada as it is in the United States—in both countries it’s on the list of most visited tourist sites. This dramatic, curving wooden staircase was one element in a six-year, multimillion-dollar redesign of the Art Gallery of Ontario, finished in late 2008. Much of Canada's vast interior is too dry for heavy snow accumulation, but just inland from the coasts, moisture frequently mixes with bitter cold and wind to produce blinding storms, like this one in eastern Canada.


The heart of Victoria, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, is its vibrant Inner Harbour, a charming place to spend an afternoon among seagulls, visual artists, and musicians.
A guide leads horses across a nameless stream during a trek through the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area. Wapusk National Park, where these two male polar bears playfully tussle, spreads over the icy northernmost reaches of Manitoba.
The precise roots of the game of ice hockey are unclear, but some theorize that it was invented in Canada as a local, cold-weather adaptation of Irish hurling or French field hockey.
The peaks of Banff National Park in Alberta dominate the sky, rising sharply above glassy meltwater lakes and breathtaking expanses of evergreen forest. Visitors to the National Geographic Museum, just half a mile from the White House, will be given the opportunity to discover the ground-breaking scientific and cultural achievements of this era, from the 7th to the 17th centuries, for six months until the 3rd of February 2013.
The 1001 Inventions exhibition was named the Best Touring Exhibition of the Year at the Museums and Heritage Excellence Awards in 2011.
A further 500,000 people saw the exhibition at the California Science Center in Los Angeles, where it closed in late April. The picturesque village of Oia in the north is the island's most outstanding example of this architectural style. Greek philosopher and rhetorician Herodes Atticus built the steep-sloped amphitheater around A.D. Built on sandstone megaliths that rise up to 1,800 feet (550 meters) from the valley floor, the first of these precarious enclaves dates to the 14th century. Here, two soldiers participate in the elaborate changing-of-the-guard ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the forecourt of Parliament House in Athens. These olives are headed for a press to become Paxos olive oil, considered by many to be Greece's finest. Government efforts to revitalize the industry include the creation of a private company to sell Greek farm products over the Internet. Built in 1889, the museum's collection contains artifacts from throughout Greece's history, including kouros and kore (shown here), marble statues from the country's Archaic period depicting the idealized human form. Created when charged particles from the sun collide with Earth's upper atmosphere, auroras vary in color from red to green to blue and vary in shape from drapes to arcs to bands.
Just a tick west of that point is Trinity Bay, where towns with names like Heart's Delight and Heart's Content dot the rugged, wave-battered coast. Nicknamed "the Crystal," it added some 100,000 square feet (9,300 square meters) of exhibit space to the museum. Founded in 1900, the museum has become one of the largest art museums in North America, with 583,000 square feet (54,000 square meters) and more than 79,000 works.


Lawrence River in Quebec City have the romance of Paris and the charm of a provincial village.
A protection program begun in the early 20th century revived the species, and now so many of these birds live in some areas of Canada and the United States that farmers consider them pests. The original migrants to Canada are thought to have crossed a now submerged land bridge during the most recent ice age, some 12,000 years ago.
Started as a trading post for the Hudson Bay Company in 1843, Victoria is western Canada's oldest city. The M-K, as locals call it, is Canada's largest wilderness area, encompassing 25,000 square miles (65,000 square kilometers) as it stretches southeastward from the Yukon-British Columbia border. The park, whose name means “white bear” in the Cree language, protects one of the world's largest known polar bear denning areas.
This highly interactive exhibition showcases the historic advancements in navigation, medicine, hydraulics, optics, mathematics and more. The 'Global Strategic Partner' for 1001 Inventions is Abdul Latif Jameel Community Initiatives, which has sponsored the exhibition and its international tour.
Oikos, the word for household, is the closest equivalent, encompassing family, property, and animals. Now accessible by road and bridge, earlier monks and pilgrims had to rely on ladders and baskets raised by winches to reach the top. Its shimmering, white-marble Parthenon (top right) is among the most recognizable structures on Earth. Exploding worldwide demand for canola oil, seed, and meal has made the crop the top source of farm income in Canada. Established in 1608 as a fur-trading settlement, this immaculately restored port is Canada's oldest city. Many of the First Nations work hard to maintain their ancient customs; the T'sasala Cultural Group regularly holds traditional dance exhibitions at its Big House, the setting here, on Cormorant Island in British Columbia. From an early age, children like these in Winnipeg become as comfortable on blades as in boots.
Here, rainbows arc across the Niagara River's churning water as the Maid of the Mist offers visitors a closer look at the falls.
