Few are fortunate enough to travel to Antarctica. Even fewer experience what it is like to live there. That's all about to change. Transport yourself to a world of ice and snow through the wonder of virtual reality, and explore a day in the life of Antarctic scientists as they research this mysterious continent at the Auckland Museum.

With 360-degree camera control and stunning 4K, high-resolution vision, you'll see first-hand the work that goes into understanding climate change, managing ecosystems, researching sustainability, and conserving wildlife.
