This bewitching member-favorite event is back for 2021!
Voyage to the Deep
Opening October 2021
This new traveling exhibit brings undersea exploration and adventure of the kind immortalized by Jules Verne’s novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. This exhibition will present both the fantasy of the novel and the facts of today, allowing visitors to explore both Verne’s imaginary world and the real-life wonders of the oceans. Discover what it is to operate a submarine, and learn about the underwater world as it would be seen from inside an imaginary deep-sea exploration vessel!
Details coming soon. Voyage to the Deep was developed by the Australian National Maritime Museum and is toured internationally by Flying Fish.
Did an Asteroid Really Kill the Dinosaurs?
Did a space-rock six miles wide slam into the Earth 66 million years ago and wipe out 75 percent of all living species at that time, including the dinosaurs? Cosmic collisions are abundant in our solar system. See the numerous craters on worlds like the moon, Mars, and even distant Pluto. Explore the dinosaur disaster up close, supported by evidence from the Museum’s own Geology department, in this MPM original Planetarium production.
