It’s a dark, cold world. Only 3 people have ever travelled to its deepest point. In fact, we know more about the surface of Mars than we do about our deep oceans.
Journey with us deep below the Earth’s surface to this dark and mysterious world.
Deep Oceans showcases strange real-life creatures as well as myths and legends about fearsome monsters of the deep.
See a life-sized replica of a 5 metre long Giant Squid as well as the real thing from the Queensland Museum collection. Experiment with hands-on activities and test the effects of water pressure on your arm or see how colour appears at different depths.
This family-friendly exhibition also invites children under 5 to learn as they follow characters from the Octonauts on their journey through the exhibition.
