Honoured in new exhibition at National Maritime Museum Cornwall.
A thirst for knowledge has driven individuals to endure the world’s extremes and this new exhibition honours some of the greatest icons in the history of polar exploration, including Scott and Shackleton.
The new six month exhibition focuses on the historic and modern-day achievements of polar pioneers, using photography, artefacts, equipment and personal ephemera.
So, when you step into National Maritime Museum Cornwall in Falmouth from the 8 April, you will be able to journey to the North and South Pole, explore Base Camp, the interactive play zone, and be absorbed by the epic achievements of our polar heritage.
On Thin Ice: Pioneers of Polar Exploration opens on 8 April and runs through to 9 October 2011.
