H.O.P.E / National Museum of Ocean


H.O.P.E is where visitors could take the elevator to the
underwater education museum, hotel, and the space of deep
sea. In addition to the visual experience, visitors can also feel
the change of temperature, pressure and even the sound of
the surrounding marine environment in the elevator.
The movement of elevator cars also serves for water quality
data collection and pollution treatment, raising the awareness
of ecology protection.
