Immerse yourself in a 20-minute historical virtual reality experience presented by Tim Jarvis AM.
In 2014, polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton led one of History’s greatest stories of leadership and survival, the ill-fated Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Over 100 years later we follow in Shackleton's footsteps with Tim Jarvis AM, experiencing the adventure first-hand to see the effect climate change has had on the Antarctic region through immersive VR. Thin Ice VR puts the audience at the centre of the story, taking viewers to a place that few have ever been before.

Biological Sciences

Research in biological sciences at the South Australian Museum is unparalleled in the world. It incorporates an exciting blend of traditional scientific disciplines, cutting edge molecular genetic technologies and unique and extensive specimen collections. Collection management and in-house research activities are conducted by a small but dedicated group of nine Research Scientists, 12 Collection Managers and Technical Staff (some are fractional appointments), supported by an active team of 31 Honorary Research Associates and nearly 60 volunteers. Museum research scientists in Biological Sciences work closely with the University of Adelaide, Flinders University of South Australia, amateur scientific societies, the South Australian Department for Environment and Water, the South Australian Department for Energy and Mining, other state agencies and scientists across Australia and the world.
