You have reached the main content region of the page.

‘Rescue’ is an interactive exhibition – putting you at the heart of the action to make split-second decisions.

Experience and react to high-pressure, rescue-based scenarios in a range of environments. Learn about radio communication, search techniques and rescue equipment such as the Jaws of Life.

Take the excitement up a notch in a life-sized helicopter rescue using infrared cameras. Drop low and go, go, go, as you feel your way through a replica burning building. Then answer a distress call, deciphering vital rescue information. It’s all-learning, all-action!

This feature exhibition runs until November 2019.
