What people are saying:

Many dream about visiting Antarctica but never get the chance to visit. However, the International Antarctic Centre lets you come a little closer to that dream. A wonderful way to get a small glimpse of what the unexplored continent is like, at the International Antarctic Centre, you will discover the landscape and wildlife of this mesmerizing slice of the world. You will also learn about the impact humans are having on Antarctica. Perhaps the best part of the museum is the Snow and Ice Experience. There, visitors can play on icy slides, feel what it’s like in an Antarctic storm, or take a cold-water plunge.
