Christchurch is known as the Gateway to Antarctica and there’s no better place to learn more about this connection than at the International Antarctic Centre where it snows every 6 minutes!

You can play in ‘Antarctic’ Snow and Ice, survive a Storm and see Little Blue Penguins.

Ride the Hagglund, take a 4D Cruise, watch a stunning movie on a MASSIVE screen and much more!
