Are You Ready For Adventure?

Our multi award-winning and record-breaking exhibition Voyage to the Deep returns to the Maritime Museum this summer across the entire school holidays - all the way to mid-February.

Based on French author Jules Verne’s 1870 classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the exhibition brings to life the deep-sea adventures of Captain Nemo, his legendary submarine Nautilus and the world of wonders he lived in.

Release Your Inner Aquanaut

At the centre of this fantasy world: a giant replica Nautilus. Kids can climb aboard and discover the inner world of a deep-sea submarine.

Take up the controls at the helm, peer through the periscope, crank the propeller, test out the bunks and explore Captain Nemo’s mysterious Cabinet of Curiosities: find out how hard a whale tooth is, and get to handle a real-life harpoon!

There’s even a bubbly pipe organ to play and a galley full of strange and disgusting foods to discover.

Underwater Adventures

Dress up in a dive suit and venture through a magical world beneath the waves. Hunt for treasure in the wreck of a Spanish galleon. Explore the lost world of Atlantis. Stomp through the octopus's garden with its giant clam shell, wander through a maze of sea weed in the life-size kelp forest - and then slide down a giant squid!

It’s an interactive, immersive, hands-on experience with opportunities to touch, explore and play. The exhibition is aimed at children under 12, and encourages learning through interaction.

This family exhibition for children under 12 encourages learning through interaction.

Voyage to the Deep was inspired 20,000 Leagues Under the Seas, a fantastical novel written by Jules Verne almost 150 years ago. Explore Verne’s imaginary, mythical world with us as well as learn real facts about the oceans today.
