Immersion is this summer’s new interactive exhibition at the oceanographic museum. Visitors can dive into the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia – virtually, of course – and discover the iconic species that inhabit the planet’s largest coral reef. Immersion uses high tech and a real-time projection system to plunge people into an eerily realistic ecosystem where humpback whales, woebeggong sharks, barracudas, fluorescent corals, and other species interact with visitors’ movements and gestures. It’s an immersive experience designed to make people more aware of the importance of protecting the marine world in general and corals in particular. Coral reefs are home to 30% of marine biodiversity and are essential to man. Yet today they are dying, partly as a result of global warming.

Every day from 9.30 am to 8 pm in July-August, from 10 am to 7 pm in September.
