Description of the App :
"More men have walked on the moon than have dived to the deepest part of our oceans"
The Deep Exhibition brings together the most comprehensive collection of deep-sea specimens ever exhibited. More than 40 extremely rare animals are on display, many of which have never been seen by the public before. Odd and mesmeric, these breathtaking specimens are accompanied by 3 films and nearly 70 backlit images of captivating sea fauna and ethereal bioluminescent creatures in a unique, pitch black environment, virtually immersing visitors into the realm of the deep-sea.
Organized into thematic zones, the exhibition unfolds to reveal the different depths of the sea, from mid-water to the life on the ocean floor. Visitors have the experience of diving down the water column as they progress through the exhibition.
