Comprising four distinct zones, the exhibit immerses visitors into an awe-inspiring environment with generative real-time content fine-tuned to change everything from sunlight hues and animal behaviour to the hour and season.


After stepping through a multisensory ice cave, visitors take on the role of Arctic scientists using various interactive tools to locate animals and analyze ice cores, discovering evidence about the history and health of our climate. Visitors also get to attempt to traverse a virtual ice field, all while avoiding subsurface crevasses, aided by real-time feedback about each of their cautious steps.


The Arctic Adventure exhibit builds on Moment Factory’s and MOS’s commitment to inspire a lifelong love of science in everyone through multisensory, interactive experiences. These kinds of exhibits allow for increased access to learning, and broaden the appeal of museums to visitors with a range of needs and preferences.
