The Heikoff Giant Dome Theater will temporarily close from September 7 through the end of October 2023 as we upgrade to new, state-of-the-art seats and enhance our accommodations for an even more extraordinary experience at the Fleet Science Center.   


It is a land of mystery, yet what happens here affects everyone. With never-before-seen footage, Antarctica brings us to the farthest reaches of this wild and majestic continent. It is the coldest, driest and windiest place on Earth, with the roughest oceans and yet, wonderful creatures thrive here in astounding abundance. 

Dive beneath sea ice, more than six feet thick, to experience the alien world of its seafloor—thousands of purple starfish scuttling to escape being entrapped by growing ice and elaborate jellyfish dancing a deadly dance. Swim alongside playful seals, soar above mountain peaks and vast penguin colonies, and witness the largest congregation of fin and humpback whales ever filmed.

A young seal looks at the camera while leaning on a sleeping adult seal's head.
A penguin and leopard seal face off. Both are open mouthed screaming at the other. The penguin is standing on ice and the seal is popped up over the edge of the ice with it's head.
Underwater, with ice above, a cluster of pink and purple sea stars rest on the rocky bottom of the ocean. A large white spider-like crab climbs over the sea stars.
A whale breaching the surface of a grey ocean. There is green land in the background and a streak of a rainbow crosses the top left corner.
