The Antarctica VR Experience

  Fri 14 Feb 2020 to Sun 03 May 2020
Auckland War Memorial Museum

Few are fortunate enough to travel to Antarctica. Even fewer experience what it is like to live there. That's all about to change. Transport yourself to a world of ice and snow through the wonder of virtual reality, and explore a day in the life of Australian Antarctic scientists as they research this mysterious continent.

With 360-degree camera control and stunning 4K, high-resolution vision, you'll see first-hand the work that goes into understanding climate change, managing ecosystems, researching sustainability, and conserving wildlife.

Along the way you'll:
• Explore Antarctica from a helicopter cockpit, even landing on glaciers.
• Discover the resident penguin colony and see the new chicks.
• Explore Davis Station and logistics that go into surviving the harsh Antarctic conditions.
• View the spectacular Southern Lights in high definition.

On now for a limited time only!

Please note: The Antarctica VR experience lasts for 21 minutes. Please allow 45 minutes from the start of your session to the end to account for walking to and from the room, and a safety demonstration.
