    Despite its seemingly remote location, the Arctic is connected to all of us. Arctic Voices is a family-friendly exhibition that will take you on a journey to this fascinating and ever changing region.

    The Arctic is more than just snow: it is land, water, and ice. It is home to people and wildlife. It is a place of rapid change. Find out what affects the Arctic and in turn, how the Arctic impacts the whole planet.


    Take a closer look at the connections between life on land and life in the sea. Pounce, hop, push and crawl your way through animal life in the Arctic. Travel with scientists as they catch and tag Arctic whales. Go on a garden tour to see how plants have adapted to survive and thrive in this harsh environment.

    Hear from the people that inhabit this region as they share their knowledge and unique culture. Participate in throat singing, a traditional art with modern applications. Meet some of the scientists documenting and studying the implications of a changing north. Challenge your perceptions of the Arctic and discover a colourful land that's closer to your own backyard than you think.\


    Ticket information

    Open daily, 9.30am–5pm, from 14 December 2017 to 1 May 2018.
