Voyage to the Deep is an interactive exhibition developed by the Australian National Maritime Museum and toured internationally by Flying Fish. Based on French author Jules Verne’s 1870 classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the exhibition brings to life the deepsea 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!
