Centenary Exhibition: Scott's Last Expedition
This blockbuster centenary exhibition is the result of a partnership between the Natural History Museum, London; the Antarctic Heritage Trust (New Zealand); and the Canterbury Museum, New Zealand.
Scott’s Last Expedition brings together for the first time rare scientific specimens collected on the expedition with real artefacts used by Scott and his team. By combining the historical, scientific and polar expertise of the partners, the exhibition will go beyond the familiar tales of the journey to the Pole and the death of the Polar party to explore the Terra Nova expedition from every angle.
At the centre of the exhibition is a stylised representation of Scott’s expedition hut. The exhibit will give visitors a sense of everyday realities for expedition members, their scientific investigations and powerful stories of human endeavour and survival through original artefacts, many of which are displayed for the first time.
Scott’s Last Expedition will run at the Australian National Maritime Museum, Sydney from June - October 2011; at the Natural History Museum, London from January - September 2012, and finally the Canterbury Museum, Christchurch, New Zealand from November 2012 - June 2013
