Description :

Immersive Antarctica: A Frozen Night is a virtual reality (VR) immersive experience which transports audiences to the southern hemisphere, walking in the shoes of Antarctic explorers, and experiencing the sights and sounds of a frozen continent. The project, created by Anglia Ruskin University and the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust (UKAHT) in Cambridge, shares real stories of exploration and scientific research. The event is an opportunity to access one of the most remote places on Earth!

A Frozen Night brings to life Britain's work on the continent over several decades with a mix of technology, storytelling, archival records, and data collected from the Trust's bases.

Due to the nature of the VR experience, bookings are for ONE person for ONE 30-minute slot between 10am and 4pm. There are 3 tickets available for each time slot. Tickets include entry to the museum for the whole day.

It may be possible to experience the VR on the day, but to guarantee your place please book. Note that the VR experience is recommended for ages 12 and above. Children age 8-14 years would require their guardian's consent before using the VR.

There will also be an opportunity to take part in a focus group about the experience. If you would like to take part in the focus group, please email for details.

Please note that children must not be unsupervised while accompanying adults experience the VR system.
