What to expect

The International Antarctic Centre located right in Christchurch, New Zealand, opens its doors to visitors looking to uncover the frozen lands located at the farthest regions of the world, in inhospitable climates where only a few species can manage to survive. In spite of the somber topic it undertakes, the center aims to promote learning and education about this region through the use of the fun and interactive activities found within. No matter the age of the participant, they’ll discover something new and fascinating about the Antarctic through a snow and ice experience unlike any other. Don’t miss the Antarctic Storm simulation, hang out with the Little Blue Penguins, and experience everyday life in modern-day Antarctica. Lose yourself in the world of icy discoveries in the center!
