This family exhibition for children under 12 encourages learning through interaction. It’s a hands-on experience with opportunities to touch, explore and play. We’ve even written a special Guide for Grown Ups!
Voyage to the Deep will take you under the ocean where you can:
You’ll also find out about ghost nets, aquanauts and marine snow. See the school of jellyfish made from fishing line, feel the weight of deep-sea diving boots and decide whether you could live and work under water.
Voyage to the Deep was inspired 20,000 Leagues Under the Seas, a fantastical novel written by Jules Verne almost 150 years ago. It’s been made into several films and still excites kids into dressing up as Captain Nemo and raising the periscope aboard a submarine named Nautilus.
Explore Verne’s imaginary, mythical world with us as well as learn real facts about the oceans today.
‘You will not regret the time spent aboard my vessel. You are going to travel through a wonderland. Astonishment and stupefaction will probably be your normal state of mind.’
- Captain Nemo
The Australian National Maritime Museum also has a real submarine, HMAS Onslow, located just outside the main entrance.
