Based on French author Jules Verne’s 1870 classic, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, this exhibition brings to life the adventures of Captain Nemo, his fantastical submarine Nautilus, and the mythical world he inhabited. At the center of this fantasy world is the giant Nautilus where visitors can climb aboard and discover the inner workings of a deep-sea vessel. Take up the controls at the helm, look through periscopes, crank the propeller, test out the bunks, and explore Captain Nemo’s Cabinet of Curiosities, full of incredible marine specimens. The highly interactive experience explores marine habitats and creatures, diving equipment, and maritime archaeology, delivering immersive experiences for children and engaging content for adults. Visitors will encounter a variety of activities ranging from full-body activities like slides and climbing structures to simple tabletop games. Voyage to the Deep – Underwater Adventures is an unforgettable experience that combines science education, exploration, and entertainment. It’s a unique opportunity for families, students, and anyone seeking adventure to dive into the wonders of the deep sea and celebrate the enduring legacy of Jules Verne’s literary masterpiece.
