Antarctica as you’ve never seen it before!

Auckland War Museum opens an interesting new experience for visitors to experience the wonder of virtual reality

 Few are fortunate enough to travel to Antarctica. Even fewer experience what it is like to live there. That's all about to change. Transport yourself to a world of ice and snow through the wonder of virtual reality and explore a day in the life of Australian Antarctic scientists as they research this mysterious continent.

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

  • Explore Antarctica from a helicopter cockpit, even landing on glaciers.
  • Discover the resident penguin colony and see the new chicks.
  • Explore Davis Station and logistics that go into surviving the harsh Antarctic conditions.
  • View the spectacular Southern Lights in high definition.

This touring event is a 21-minute 360-degree VR film experience and will run from Saturday 21 December 2019 until Sunday 3 May 2020. The film follows Australian Antarctic researchers and explores different aspects of their everyday life in Antarctica. Visitors sit in 360 spinning chairs and wear a VR headset and headphones for the duration of the experience.
