Hong Kong Space Museum launches new Omnimax show “Sea Lions: Life by a Whisker”


    21st April 2022 – (Hong Kong) The Hong Kong Space Museum launched a new Omnimax show, “Sea Lions: Life by a Whisker”, today. The show features an endangered Australian sea lion pup named Otto and her wondrous coming-of-age tale, which is filled with hope and awe.

    Picture shows a cuttlefish trying to hide from an Australian sea lion by changing its colours and contours to mimic the environment.
    Picture shows a humpback whale.

     Living on a jagged cliff face next to a roaring ocean along the Australian coast, Otto learns to navigate the beautiful yet challenging coastal environment with the help of her mother and others. During her journey of growth, she meets giant humpback whales, cunning cuttlefish, great white sharks and eventually a marine park ranger who strives to save the endangered Australian sea lions by crossing the ocean to the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, the United States, to find out the keys to sea lion conservation.

    The screening times of the 44-minute show are 3.30pm and 8pm on weekdays and 2pm and 6.30pm on weekends and public holidays. The Hong Kong Space Museum, located at 10 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, is closed on Tuesdays (except public holidays).
