The Museum inaugurated its new exhibition in the Whale Room in July 2020 «Traveling in IMMERSION from the North Pole to the South Pole.»
In this space, the wild, grandiose beauty of these frozen lands comes to life in an unprecedented immersive and interactive device. With a projection surface area of 650 m², the visitor is propelled into the heart of polar landscapes where he will experience 6 emblematic scenes. Firstly, the North Pole in the company of a she-bear and her cubs, or beneath the sea ice to free-dive beside seals, beluga whales or narwhals. Then to the South Pole where visitors come across whales with ever-open mouths, ready to swallow hundreds of kilos of krill before fleeing under their feet; not forgetting the elephant seals resting on their sides, keeping an eye on the killer whales which are ready to emerge from the water; emperor penguins pressed against each other against the blizzard and to protect their young. A wonderland which ends in the dreamlike polar aurora. A voice-over is present in each picture to remind us of the fragility of this ecosystem and the threats to these species. For instance, bears have difficulties in finding food because of the melting ice pack, just like the penguin colonies at the South Pole.
