Explore the world of the largest animal on Earth—the magnificent blue whale—on the giant screen. 

Blue Whales: Return of the Giants, narrated by actor Andy Serkis, takes viewers on a journey into the world of blue whales, a species rebounding from the brink of extinction. 

Follow two scientific expeditions: one, a high-risk mission to find a missing population of blue whales, not seen in 50 years; and the other, to join Diane Gendron, the “Blue Whale Whisperer,” in Mexico’s Gulf of California, where she and her team explore the important role these remarkable animals play in the health of our oceans.

Offering a remarkable view into the lives these animals live—and the extremes scientists endure to study them, Blue Whales: Return of the Giants will entertain audiences of all ages and deepen our understanding of these iconic animals.

Select the number of tickets, and date/time for Museum entry, and you will be then able to add Blue Whales and/or additional Ticketed Exhibitions during checkout.
