What is ICEBERGS?
-- ICEBERGS invites visitors to explore a fantastical glacial sea designed by landscape architects, visit an undersea bridge, and slide down an ice chute. Japanese kakigori shaved ice will be provided by the restaurant Daikaya.
-- ICEBERGS is built from re-usable construction materials, such as scaffolding and polycarbonate paneling, a material commonly used in building greenhouses. The 20' high "water line" allows panoramic views from high above the ocean surface and down below among the towering bergs. The tallest “bergy bit,” at 56', reaches to the third story balcony of the Museum. ICEBERGS occupies a total area of 12,540 square feet.
