Aquanauts - The Expedition

An undiscovered species. A parallel universe.
A story that affects your senses, raises questions and demands answers.

Aquanauts – The Expedition is a unique exhibition that reveals what really happened during the dramatic expedition to the Siljan Ring in the summer of 1897. What did researchers Inga-Lisa Blomgren and Beata Gardelius discover? And where did the two women go?

Photographs and drawings. Diaries and scent trails. Bone remains and fossils. Clues that reveal a hitherto unknown aquatic life form. Here you will experience something you have never seen before, something unexplored and amazing.

Are these crazy fantasies or are we facing irrefutable evidence that has escaped science? Find your answers on Aquanauts – The Expedition.

Good to know!
