The Polar Mission exhibition
The Polar Mission exhibition: discovering the poles
Starting June 4, 2022, a 5-step tour will take you on a polar mission as a reporter! An immersive journey to learn more about these distant and mysterious lands.
POLAR MISSION EXHIBITION
The poles as if you were there!
The Oceanographic Museum’s new exhibition offers a five-step immersion in the heart of the Arctic and Antarctic. You will be able to meet the great explorers who have ventured there, the species that have adapted to these extreme environments, the people who have chosen the Great North to live there, and the researchers who are advancing science… Like a journalist reporter, you will be given an entrance ticket illustrating a press card that allows you to trigger all sorts of content and information as you wander around. Embarked on a polar mission, you will be able to collect all the information you need to create your report, which you will be invited to deliver at the end of your visit.
The “IMMERSION” room is the highlight of the visit, offering 650 m2 of projection space, so that you can experience the beauty but also the fragility of the polar worlds up close. It is because healthy poles are absolutely essential to the balance of the planet Earth that Prince Albert I, at the turn of the 19th century, and H.S.H. Prince Albert II, today, have made these extreme territories part of Monaco’s DNA. The Oceanographic Institute for one, the Prince Albert II Foundation for the other. This great exhibition is a new illustration.
