Special Exhibition: Once Upon a Sea

Once Upon a Sea is a special exhibition all about the history of the ocean and the spectacular sea creatures of the past.

The heart of the exhibit is 10 models of the most spectacular ocean creatures that ever lived. The models are life sized and represent a snippet of the most significant animals to have lived in the 550 million years of ocean history. From giant scaled octopi the size of a truck, to the 11-meter-long forefather of the white shark, the megalodon.
