    “Science merges with art in an exhibition that invites visitors to engage their senses to explore the phenomena of light, sound and optics. Be immersed in a space where lasers project holographic effects to an evolving original soundtrack; enter a room of LED screens that create a spectacle to confound and entrance, and lie beneath an ultraviolet garden of floral meditation. Be inspired by the scientific splendor and illuminate your eyes, ears and mind with LightTime.”

    ARCTIC VOICES

    Date: March 19, 2018 - May 1, 2018

    Time: 9:30 am to 5:00 pm

    “This summer the Australian National Maritime Museum is taking families on a fascinating journey to the Arctic in a new interactive exhibition, Arctic Voices, open until 1 May, 2018. The Arctic is a place of rapid change and despite its seemingly remote location, it is connected to us all. What affects the Arctic in turn affects the whole planet. Arctic Voices uses interactive experiences, photos, videos and real specimens to convey that the Arctic is more than just snow – it is land, water, and ice. It is home to people and a surprising diversity of wildlife. Arctic Voices will challenge perceptions of the Arctic and introduce visitors to a colourful land. Children can pounce, hop, push and crawl their way through animal life in the Arctic, and come face to face with a polar bear and other arctic creatures. They can travel with scientists as they catch and tag Arctic whales, and then go on a “”garden tour”” examining specimens to see how plants have adapted to survive and thrive in this harsh environment. Families can listen to stories from the people who inhabit this region, as they share their knowledge about the land and their unique culture. They can even try throat singing. And during the school holidays, there’s plenty of associated activities to keep families entertained when visiting Arctic Voices. Don’t miss the kids’ craft and dress-up sessions, fascinating 3D film, lively theatre show, interactive Cabinet of Curiosities and tours for the under 5s.”
