A unique kids exhibition that will take them under the sea
It's time to turn off the Octonauts marathon and head down to the WA Maritime Museum for a truly exciting look at the undersea world.
The multi-award winning exhibition Voyage to The Deep is aimed at children aged under 12 years and will dock at the Museum from Saturday, 27th May to Sunday, 20th August during opening hours.
This is an unparalleled opportunity to voyage into the mysterious and marvellous undersea world and experience all that life below has to offer. The exhibition is based on the classic 1870 novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, by French author Jules Verne and focuses on the deep-sea adventures of Captain Nemo.
At the centre of the exhibition is a huge replica of Captain Nemo's famous submarine Nautilus, in which the children can climb on board. The exhibition has been designed to be interactive, hands-on and truly immersive, and encouraging opportunities to explore, touch and play.
Just some of the activities on offer include exploring the Nautilus – take control of the sub, have a lay down on the bunks and even get your hands on a real harpoon. Kids can dress up in dive suits, hunt for treasure among a shipwreck and slide down a giant squid.
Tickets to the exhibition, including entry to the museum, are $20 for adults, $15 for concession and $12.50 for children aged four to 12 years. Children aged three and under are free. A family pass is $60.
This truly child-friendly museum is one of the best for families in Perth, and this amazing undersea adventure is sure to thrill your little squids as they learn all about life in a submarine.
