New for 2018, the must-visit Sea Creatures: Life Beneath The Ocean exhibition comes to Scotland from 21 September - 18 October, offering a never-before-seen close up of more than 50 sea creatures and ocean specimens.
The exhibition allows visitors to explore the secrets of life beneath the ocean’s waves featuring incredible cross-sections of the animals and their complex organs - from whales and penguins to Great White sharks - using the same plastination process as developed by Dr Gunther von Hagens and made famous by artist Damien Hirst.
Perfect for all ages, visitors will be able to glimpse inside these majestic beasts, learning about the complex life systems within and why we need to protect precious ocean life.
Alongside the many full-body exhibits will be a host of smaller displays, including the lung and eyeball of a Mink Whale, a whale’s kidney, the egg of a King Penguin, a Sea Lion’s heart and shark’s teeth. In total, over 200 exhibits will be on show.
The educational exhibition will also feature Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, digital interactive experiences, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in an underwater world.
Sea creatures will be brought to life by a range of digital interactive experiences and will allow visitors to explore the deepest regions of planet earth’s oceans. The exhibition kicks off in London in July, before coming to Edinburgh then on to Harrogate and Belfast later in the year.
