Take a dive into a deep sea adventure

5th November 2010 to 31st August 2011 in the Japanese Palace in Dresden (Germany)

Welcome to an alien world of mysterious beings! Marvel at luminous fish with enormous teeth, transparent squids and huge, meat-eating jellyfish, and those leviathans of the deep, sperm whales and giant squid!

From 5th November 2010 to 31st August 2011 experience the deep sea close up in Dresden. The Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung, in cooperation with the Natural History Museum in Basle, Switzerland, offers a glimpse into deep-sea research then and now at the Deep Sea Exhibition in the Japanese Palace.

Designed as a tour with more than 70 exhibits,  dioramas and a multitude of film clips, visitors of all ages to the Japanese Palace will certainly find something to fascinate them. This is a scientific adventure as close as you can get, from myths of sea monsters from the past to modern research into the biodiversity of the oceans.

This is a chance to combine your next stay in Dresden with a visit to the Deep Sea Exhibition. You’ll find the Japanese Palace right in the middle of the city, just a few minutes’ walk from the Castle and the famous Golden Rider.

English-language audio guides are available for your deep-sea adventure. Special guided tours in English can also be organized on request (upwards of 10 participants; please call us on 0049 (0)351 / 79 58 414 – 408).

Let us whisk you away into the diversity of the ocean deeps!

The Senckenberg scientists have some interesting tales to tell from their regular voyages in different vessels on the high seas. Their research into the vast and nearly unknown deep-sea ecosystem is continually revealing new species.

Experience a strange world full of mysteries and myths in the Deep Sea Exhibition! Discover gigantic ecosystems far less well known than the other side of the moon. Take the opportunity to meet curious beings. Wonder at the replica of the famous bathysphere diving-bell or make a virtual journey in the eleven-metre long submarine ‘Mariana 10914.’
