Release your inner aquanaut

At the centre of this fantasy world: a giant replica Nautilus. Kids can climb aboard and discover the inner world of a deep-sea submarine.

Take up the controls at the helm, peer through the periscope, crank the propeller, test out the bunks and explore Captain Nemo’s mysterious Cabinet of Curiosities: find out how hard a whale tooth is and handle a real-life harpoon!

There’s even a bubbly pipe organ to play and a galley full of strange and disgusting foods to discover.

Underwater adventures

Dress up in a dive suit and venture through a magical world beneath the waves. Hunt for treasure in the wreck of a Spanish galleon. Explore the lost world of Atlantis. Stomp through the octopus's garden with its giant clam shell, wander through a maze of sea weed in the life-size kelp forest - and then slide down a giant squid!

It’s an interactive, immersive, hands-on experience with opportunities to touch, explore and play. The exhibition is aimed at children under 12, and encourages learning through interaction.
