The Antarctica Experience

A fully immersive VR adventure

Opens September!

WA Maritime 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.

In this interactive documentary, we put you in the driver's seat to run your own day in the life of an Antarctic explorer.

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

Together with tradespeople, aviation teams, doctors, chefs, communication operators and technology experts, you will experience what it’s like to live in one of the remotest places on the planet.

Along the way you may:

  • Accompany the research team on an imperative, risky expedition.
  • Travel to the resident penguin colony to see the new chicks.
  • Jump in a zodiac to discover marine life and take in the incredible sights.
  • Explore basecamp and take on the duties that go into surviving the harsh Antarctic conditions.

With 360-degree camera control, interactive guided tours and stunning high quality vision, we welcome you to your Antarctica Experience.

This groundbreaking VR adventure will launch exclusively at the WA Maritime Museum this September.

Tickets coming soon.
