Sessions have limited places, book your tickets before your visit to avoid disappointment.

After a sell-out season at the WA Maritime Museum and at the National Museum of Australia, The Antarctica Experience is coming to Albany!

This is your chance to experience a day in the life of Antarctic scientists as they research this mysterious continent.

You will see first-hand the work that goes into understanding climate change, managing ecosystems, researching sustainability and conserving wildlife.

Along the way you will:

  • Explore Antarctica from a helicopter cockpit
  • Visit the resident penguin colony
  • Meet the researchers at Davis Station
  • See the spectacular Southern Lights

With 360-degree camera control and stunning 4K footage, this is Antarctica as you’ve never seen it before.

Tickets are on sale now! Discounts available for education and family groups.


Ticketing

Purchase your tickets before arriving at the Museum—there are limited places each day.

Sessions run daily at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm & 3pm.
