Few are fortunate enough to travel to Antarctica. Even fewer experience what it is like to live there. That's all about to change.

After a sell-out season at the WA Maritime Museum and at the National Museum of Australia, The Antarctica Experience - Virtual Reality Adventure is coming to the Goldfields!

This is your chance to experience a day in the life of Antarctic scientists as they research this mysterious continent.

You will see first-hand the work that goes into understanding climate change, managing eco-systems, researching sustainability, and conserving wildlife.

Along the way you will:
- Explore Antarctica from a helicopter cockpit, even landing on glaciers.
- Jump in a zodiac to 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.

With 360-degree camera control and stunning 4K, high-resolution vision, we welcome you to your immersive Antarctic Experience.

Sessions run daily at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, and 2pm. The Museum is closed on Good Friday. Only the 1pm and 2pm sessions are available on ANZAC Day. Each session runs for 30 minutes. To make sure we are running on time, please make sure you arrive five minutes before your booked time.
