See Scott's Last Expedition

One of the special exhibitions currently showing at the Natural History Museum, Scott's Last Expedition charts the story of Captain Robert Falcon Scott's last expedition to Antarctica in 1910-1913.


The exhibition looks at the expedition in its entirety, charting the final push to the South Pole, but also the seasons spent doing scientific work from the base hut at Cape Evans, which is mapped out in life size within the expedition helping visitors to understand what life might have been like, and using genuine artefacts and scientific specimens from the expedition to tell the story.
