Dive into this immersive shark experience. No water required!

Planet Shark: Predator or Prey will take you on an incredible journey into the underwater world of sharks – without ever getting your feet wet. Cutting-edge SENSORY4TM Technology provides a walk-through, multi-sensory cinematic gallery experience that will leave you deeply immersed in the story of this magnificent yet misunderstood animal. Trace millions of years of evolution, come face-to-face with the great white shark and gain a whole new level of respect for the ocean’s oldest predator we all love to fear.

Produced on a size and scale never seen before, this exhibition includes awe-inspiring shark models cast from real animals, an extraordinary collection of real teeth and jaws, and extremely old and rare fossils – some up to 370 million years old. With fishing pressure and media misrepresentation pushing the shark to the brink of extinction, their last hope lies with public education and awareness – and the launch of Planet Shark: Predator or Prey is a vital first step.
