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.
Experience what it feels like to be in the Antarctic.
If you've never seen a penguin up close and personal then the International Antarctic Centre is the place to go! It's not only a fun place to visit but it's also really informative with lots of commentary by the staff and informative displays. There is a daily penguin feeding, a blizzard experience, short documentary and some wonderful 4D children's movies. A great place to visit on a rainy winters day!
Super interesting museum! I went twice when I lived here.
The Antarctic Centre is a great place to spend a few hours in Christchurch. You can get up close and personal with some penguins, ride on a snow-cat and even step into a room that's the same temperature as the South Pole! great for the kids and anyone with an interest in the deep, deep south!
Really enjoyed it and was interesting learning about the penquins, so cute also
