MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) — The Milwaukee Public Museum (MPM) welcomed the international travelling exhibition Voyage to the Deep on Friday, Oct. 15 and families took advantage to explore the new exhibit on Saturday.
The exhibit is an interactive experience for kids and adults to jump aboard the Nautilus submarine to explore the underwater world and is inspired by a novel of underwater exploration from Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
Visitors can engage with both the fantasy of the novel and the facts of today, exploring Verne’s imaginary world and the real-life wonder of the oceans.
?We are so excited to have Voyage to the Deep in Milwaukee,? said MPM President and CEO Dr. Ellen Censky. ?Living in Wisconsin, children do not have as many opportunities to learn about the ocean. This interactive exhibit will enable kids in our community to learn about the deep sea through play and imagination.?
