Xpress Pass

Price from £19 per person

The Aquarium displays some of the actual specimens from the Antarctic ocean floor in McMurdo Sound, while the gallery area is packed full of informative displays showcasing modern day Antarctica, including the Antarctic treaty partners, the human impact on the continent, the wildlife and plant systems and Antarctica’s effect on the globe. This gallery area encourages ‘touching’ of most of the exhibits to ensure visitors experience Antarctica in a fun and interactive way. Visitors conclude their Antarctic journey with a 14 minute sound and light show. This majestic audio visual show captivates its audience and leaves visitors with a moving experience of “having been there”. Tour concludes at clients’ discretion, at the International Antarctic Centre.
