JAMES CAMERON – CHALLENGING THE DEEP is a travelling exhibition produced by the Australian National Maritime Museum, in association with the Avatar Alliance Foundation and toured internationally by Flying Fish.
The JAMES CAMERON – CHALLENGING THE DEEP exhibit increased attendance to TELUS World of Science – Edmonton during the very uncertain times of COVID. The presentation and content is very well curated and provides visitors with an immersive experience that is enjoyed by all age groups. Thanks to Flying Fish we were able to include the DEEP SEA CHALLENGER sub with our presentation, which further enhanced the exhibit experience. I strongly urge other institutions to host the exhibit and the sub.
