Voyage to the Deep is currently on tour at the Newcastle Museum.
Our multi award-winning and record-breaking exhibition Voyage to the Deep returns to the Maritime Museum this summer across the entire school holidays - all the way to mid-February.
Based on French author Jules Verne’s 1870 classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the exhibition brings to life the deep-sea adventures of Captain Nemo, his legendary submarine Nautilus and the world of wonders he lived in.
At the centre of this fantasy world: a giant replica Nautilus. Kids can climb aboard and discover the inner world of a deep-sea submarine.
Take up the controls at the helm, peer through the periscope, crank the propeller, test out the bunks and explore Captain Nemo’s mysterious Cabinet of Curiosities: find out how hard a whale tooth is, and get to handle a real-life harpoon!
There’s even a bubbly pipe organ to play and a galley full of strange and disgusting foods to discover.
Dress up in a dive suit and venture through a magical world beneath the waves. Hunt for treasure in the wreck of a Spanish galleon. Explore the lost world of Atlantis. Stomp through the octopus's garden with its giant clam shell, wander through a maze of sea weed in the life-size kelp forest - and then slide down a giant squid!
It’s an interactive, immersive, hands-on experience with opportunities to touch, explore and play. The exhibition is aimed at children under 12, and encourages learning through interaction. It's also fun as a family - we’ve even written a special Guide for Grown Ups.
