EXHIBIT: Visitors enter past a statue depicting the six ethnic races found in Guyana carrying the Guyana flag proudly into a bright future. Arrows on the floor direct visitors to follow the exhibit. A central nexus contains computers that visitors may use to access information on the various indigenous peoples of Guyana, as well as more recent arrivals. Visitors will then enter the Time Tunnel, displaying the diverse heritage of Guyana and the origins of the six peoples that make up the Guyana nation; national heroes from all six races are highlighted in the tunnel. From there, visitors will enter Guyana Nature Wealth, showing the natural abundance that is Guyana. It is bookended by Orinduik Falls and Kaieteur Falls, the highest single drop waterfall in the world. In between is an exhibit on the Iwokrama canopied walkway, a tourist attraction known worldwide. Video display screens show the beautiful scenery of Guyana and the model of an indigenous house shows how the people of Guyana have always integrated the natural setting into their lives. Making Guyana a Modern State is the next exhibition area, with a miniature model of the city that visitors may walk through, illustrating with additional video screens how the people of Guyana turned the country from a wilderness into a modern state. Finally, Guyana’s status of the Breadbasket of the Caribbean and her exported products are highlighted as the visitor comes full circle in the Pavilion.
