Explore a day in the life of Antarctic scientists in this immersive virtual reality adventure, brought to you by the National Museum of Australia and the Western Australian Museum.

Tour Antarctica from a helicopter cockpit, land on glaciers and discover a penguin colony, including their chicks. Learn about daily life in these harsh conditions and marvel at the spectacular southern lights.

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

Note: The Antarctica Experience is suitable for all audiences, however the VR headset is recommended for users 13 years and older. Children under the age of 13 are still welcome to attend a session but parent discretion is advised for wearing VR headsets. Not recommended for people with certain medical conditions; glasses can be worn under the headset, but the focus cannot be adjusted. Visitors are welcome to attend a session and enjoy the film in 2D.

Please read the health and safety notice before you book.

The Antarctica Experience is a White Spark Pictures production and would not have been possible without the incredible support of key partners: Australian Antarctic Division, Screen Australia, Screenwest, Lotterywest, DNEG and the Western Australian Museum. White Spark Pictures travelled to Antarctica with the support of the Australian Antarctic Program.
