Rescue

From the air to the sea and on land, learn about the technology and techniques that rescuers use in life-and-death situations.

You have reached the main content region of the page.

Search and rescue operations take place every minute, every hour, every day, all around the world. From the air to the sea and on land, responsive operations are lifelines to many people in times of need. But what does a rescue scenario really involve?

Rescue! allows visitors to engage with exciting hands-on and full-body experiences such as firefighting, surf rescue and sea life survival, whilst comprehensive graphic panels communicate the technology and techniques that rescuers use.

The exhibition design is real, relevant and interactive, and offers visitors a unique experience for those who dare to enter the earthquake-damaged entrance. Captivating exhibits throw visitors straight into the thrall of emergency scenarios and encourage participation with all ages.

Rescue! is designed to engage visitors of all ages with science and technology that is both credible and relevant to everyday life.
