Scott’s Last Expedition Exhibition
Scott’s Last Expedition Exhibit explores the fascinating story of Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s last expedition to Antarctica in 1910-1913, the Terra Nova, in a groundbreaking exhibition. These specimens showcased are appearing for the first time, alongside a life-sized representation of Scott’s huts.
Scott’s Last Expedition goes beyond the known tales of the three-year journey to the South Pole and the death of the Polar Party to explore the expedition from diverse angles. The exhibit focuses on the everyday stories and activities of the people who took part, their scientific work and extraordinary human endurance. This exhibit will be showing from January 20, 2012- September 2, 2012.
Scott’s Last Expedition Exhibit marks the 100-year anniversary of Scott reaching the South Pole and his tragic death. Scott said reaching the South Pole was one of his expedition’s main aims, but an ambitious program of scientific investigation and geographical exploration was also carried out while there.
The exhibition features over 200 rare specimens and original artifacts displayed alongside a representation of Scott’s hut. Many items, such as clothing, skis, food, tools and diaries are being shown together for the first time. Tickets are on sale now and quite affordable for such an eye-opening and astonishing exhibit. Bring your friends and family to witness some trailblazing history.
