NHM hosts Scott’s Last Expedition

Date Posted: 22/11/2011

London’s Natural History Museum is set to host major exhibition Scott’s Last Expedition from the 20th January to 2nd September.

Exploring Robert Falcon Scott’s epic Terra Nova expedition to Antarctica, the temporary exhibition aims to reveal the powerful tales of endurance and the many scientific achievements of the intrepid journey.

The Terra Nova returned from Antarctica with crates, jars and bottles containing a large number of zoological and geological specimens, contributing to what is now known about the continent. Scott’s Last Expedition reunites for the first time real artefacts used by Scott and his team together with scientific specimens collected on the 1910 to1913 expedition. Visiting groups can also walk around a life-size representation of Scott's base-camp hut that still survives in Antarctica.

Scott’s last Expedition charges an admission fee, and groups are entitled to a 15 per cent discount when booking online.
