About International Antarctic Center

The Christchurch International Antarctic Centre is an important gateway to the Antarctic. The International Antarctic Centre is located near Christchurch International Airport and was unveiled on September 28, 1990, operated by Christchurch International Airport Group. Here, you can learn about the history, geology and other knowledge of the continent of the Antarctic Circle through sound, light and electricity. The architecture of the International Antarctic Center is inspired by the special features of the Antarctic, such as icebergs and glaciers. The pavilion is also designed according to the climate and ice and snow of the Antarctic.

    The International Antarctic Center of Christchurch is a large-scale museum showing the tools and vehicles used in Antarctic expeditions, natural resources, scientific research activities. Here, you can experience the ice and snow of Antarctica as well as those who have not been to Antarctica. It can be said that it is the best place for training and experiencing before you go to Antarctica, and it is worth visiting.

    This is the only Antarctic Museum in the world. It's so cool! This trip is very interesting, suitable for both young and old, and the driver speaks humorously and wittily, and knows a lot, which makes it more special. These devices are incredible, and the 4D exhibition is shocking, although my 1-year-old does not think so... It's great to feed penguins. You can be very close and the breeder is very interesting. Less than 1 [% of the world's people have been to Antarctica, so this is the closest we can usually do. Recommended to older children or families.

    The International Antarctic Center is one of the most important attractions in Christchurch. It introduces a lot of Antarctic animals and plants, geographical environment and climate environment, as well as many equipment used for Antarctic expedition. It is a very instructive place before entering the Antarctic expedition. It is worth visiting and studying.

    After I deposited my pole box in the International Antarctic Center, I began to experience the journey of Antarctic exploration. First, take the Hagglund Ride, but don't underestimate it. It can climb steep slopes, cross mud, cross ditches, and adapt to the complex and changeable terrain of Antarctica. Then he put on his cotton-padded jacket and experienced the Antarctic Storm for 10 minutes. Then he went to see the staff feeding Little Blue Penguins, a small blue penguin. These little guys all have their own names. Different colors of rings can distinguish different penguins. They are all disabled and unable to return to nature, so they are taken in by the Antarctic Center. Nevertheless, it still does not prevent them from showing off their loveliness. Some swim agilely in the water, and some walk swiftly on the land.

    Although many Chinese don't think it's meaningful here, I agree with my husband that it's definitely worth visiting! In the early years, this is the real Antarctic Science and Technology Material Supply Station. Now it has become the best place for tourists to know Antarctica at close range. There are several experience items to be missed. Haglon SUV will cross the road and take you personally to experience the conditions of the Antarctic continent. It's exciting, and the Antarctic snowstorm must be experienced. It dropped from minus 8 degrees to minus 18 degrees, big. The wind is blowing, and there are small blue penguins feeding. Once again, I lament the love and protection of animals and nature of New Zealanders! Christchurch is definitely worth visiting. ~It's very close to the airport.~

    This is an activity center that I recommend very much. It's also the only place I bought tickets in New Zealand for these 10 days. Tickets have been booked from the Internet for a long time. There are superimposed discounts for student tickets and online bookings. It is more than NT$30. It is not cheap, but it can be worth the return price. However, the return ticket price here is only a preference for penguins, if not penguins, then this is not very cost-effective. The snowmobiles at the entrance can be taken directly by ticket. There is a field behind the Antarctic Center. It simulates climbing 45 degrees and wading. It feels very good.

    It is a good choice to accompany children to learn about geography and history. Professional pick-up, very kind local driver in his 60s. Along the way, I will explain the history and culture of Christchurch, the impact of the earthquake on the local area and the current rebuilding of the city... Although the Antarctic Center is not big, there are many games, such as polar cars, small penguins and snowstorm experience halls.

    Christchurch International Antarctic Center is not far from New Zealand International Airport. It's a very distinctive place and I like it very much. The museum is very lifelike and has many interesting things, such as multimedia audio-visual experience, Antarctic Ocean Fish Museum, Antarctic Storm Simulation Museum. It seems that we have really come to the Antarctic.

    Located near Christchurch Airport, you can experience it here if you arrive early. There are discounts for booking tickets in advance. You can take an Antarctic science bus, you can also feel the extreme weather in Antarctica, and you can watch 4D movies.
