Scott Polar Research Institute Museum
The Scott Polar Research Institute's Museum holds a collection of artifacts, paintings, drawings, photographs (including cinematographic film, lantern slides, and Daguerreotypes), and other material.
The focus of the exhibition is the life and expeditions of the Antarctic explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton. The majority of artefacts, documents and photographs displayed were, until recently, held privately. Previously hidden from public view, they are exhibited here for the first time.
The exhibition is a rare chance to see Shackleton's Antarctic sledging diaries from the Discovery, Nimrod, Endurance and Quest expeditions. Original letters and charts are on display as well as the beautiful red and gold sledging flag, flown at the farthest south, during the Discovery and Nimrod expeditions.
The Museum is open to the public between 2. 30-4pm Tuesday to Saturday (with the exception of some public and university holidays, and occasional other days, e. G. Over Christmas). The Museum is closed on Sundays and Mondays. .
