Located next to Christchurch Airport, the International Antarctic Centre offers a fun and interactive experience of Antarctica.
Visitors can immerse themselves in the snow and ice by sheltering in an ice cave, slide down an icy slope, brave the wind chill machine at -18 degrees Celsius and experience a simulated Antarctic Storm that occurs every hour.
The Hagglund Ride gives you the chance to experience what it's like on an all-terrain amphibious Antarctic vehicle. The Penguin Encounter is an indoor/outdoor arena viewing area to observe Little Blue Penguins.
There's also the 4D Extreme Theatre and The Antartic Gallery to learn about life in modern day Antarctica and Scott Base.
Monday - Sunday: 9.00am to 5.30pm.
