Sir Ed Hillary's Antarctic Hut VR Experience

Friday 20th-Saturday 28th May 2022

(One of the 70+ events being held during Tuku 22 Whakatū Heritage Months.)

Antarctic Heritage Trust invites you to explore Sir Edmund Hillary’s Antarctic hut through a new and fully immersive virtual reality (VR) experience!

Step inside Hillary’s hut and find out what life was like for the scientists and explorers who ventured into Antarctica’s interior during the Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1957-59.

Interact with artefacts from the hut and listen to the stories told by the protagonists.

The VR experience takes approximately 15 minutes. It is suitable for everyone from 9 years old and over.
