Exhibition Overview

The Arctic may seem remote and desolate, but it's a land of more than just ice and snow.

It's isolated by extreme weather and distance, but it's connected to the planet in ways we are now only just beginning to understand. An icy wilderness, it's also a fragile, rapidly changing environment, teeming with a colourful diversity of life.

Discover a harsh but beautiful world, filled with surprises and contradictions. Arctic Voices will turn your expectations of a barren frozen expanse, upside down.

Arctic Voices is a fun journey into a world of discovery. Children can pounce, hop, push and crawl their way through the Arctic, and come face to face with giant polar bears.

Explore with scientists as they catch and tag Arctic whales, and marvel at how plants survive and thrive in this harsh environment.

Hear from the people who make the Arctic their home, and have fun trying some Inuit throat singing. Enjoy a fun and fascinating family journey through a winter wonderland this summer.
