Direct from London, Canterbury Museum is excited to be New Zealand’s exclusive venue for the internationally-acclaimed touring exhibition Scott’s Last Expedition.

One hundred years after its tragic end, Scott’s last expedition to the Antarctic still resonates as a fantastic tale of endeavour and courage. In 1910, when Scott embarked on the former whaling ship Terra Nova during his second journey to explore the Antarctic, he could not have predicted it would be his last. Tragically, he and four of his comrades died on their return from the South Pole two years later. Developed in association with the Natural History Museum, London, and the Antarctic Heritage Trust, the exhibition Scott’s Last Expedition uncovers Scott the man, the team he took with him to Antarctica and the details of the fascinating Terra Nova expedition. Through engaging experiences, visitors will be able to explore this historic and emotional journey from every angle.

For the first time since the epic journey in Antarctica, Scott’s Last Expedition will reunite real artefacts used by Scott and his team with the rare scientific specimens they collected during the 1910-1913 expedition.
