Description

Come on an underwater adventure this summer at the National Maritime Museum! http://www.anmm.gov.au/summer Start by exploring our exciting new fantasy world Voyage to the Deep! (until 27 April 2015). Dive in and grab the wheels of a steampunk submarine, hunt for treasure in a sunken shipwreck, explore a giant kelp forest, and crank the propellers to escape from a giant squid. Next, raise your periscope and pack your bags for Going Places (until 22 February 2015) where transport has never been so much fun! Challenge your friends to a cycling race, climb into the cockpit and control your own aeroplane, fly a remote control airship and discover the inner workings of a fiery combustion engine. Then, take your seats for Captain Nemo’s Nautilus (4-25 January 2015, 11:30am & 2pm, daily, except Saturdays), an action-packed live theatre performance. Travel back in time with a cast of quirky characters inspired by 20 000 Leagues Under the Seas and take part in daring escapes from ravenous creatures, time travelling volcanoes and swirling ocean storms. And if that’s not enough, climb aboard our real-life secret and stealthy submarine HMAS Onlsow moored right outside the museum in Darling Harbour. Your Voyage to the Deep Big Ticket provides access to everything open at the museum on the day of your visit including the vessels and all exhibitions. So join us for our biggest summer adventure yet. Dive in to Voyage to the Deep, become the driver in Going Places and travel back in time with Captain Nemo’s Nautilus. It’s fun for the whole family!
