Based on French author Jules Verne’s 1870 classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the exhibition brings to life the deep-sea adventures of Captain Nemo, his fantastical Nautilus submarine, and the mythical world he inhabited.
At the center of this fantasy world is the giant Nautilus where kids can climb aboard and discover the inner workings of a deep-sea submersible... they can take up the controls at the helm, peer through the periscopes, crank the propeller, test out the bunks and explore Captain Nemo’s Cabinet of Curiosities full of wonderful marine specimens. There’s even a bubbly pipe organ to play and a galley full of strange foods to discover!
Kids can then slip on a deep-sea dive suit and venture through the world below the waves including the octopus’ garden with its giant clamshell, a giant squid to slide down, and then wander through the maze of seaweed in the kelp forest. They can also explore the lost world of Atlantis.
