The deep sea

What creatures lurk beneath the surface?

The deep sea

Due to preparation for the opening of BODY WORLDS Vital the 6th of June, the last chance to see The deep sea will be April 30th. The exhibition will reopen in the fall.

Were you aware that giant squids have drifted ashore in Mid-Norway? 

In this exhibition we explore various organisms living in the sea and finds from the wreck The Pearl. The ship, a frigate, sank in a storm off Norwegian waters in 1781.  Its wreck was discovered in the 1970s and subsequently explored by marine archaeologists.

The exhibition houses a large artificial aquarium with models of both common and rare species of fish. The model of out giant squid hangs suspended from the ceiling and is over 9 meters long! You will also get the opportunity to see photos of the specimen collected, giant squid beaks, and a preserved tentacle.
