Back in 1911 two men, Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen and British Navy officer Robert Scott were determined to conquer the South Pole. What had started as a personal ambition to reclaim the South Pole for their respective countries, suddenly turned into a race when they found out about the plans of the other.
The exhibition Race to the End of the Earth, currently open at the Seaplane Harbour, is a fantastic journey through the remarkable attempt of these two people and their teams to make it to the South Pole.
The story about the conquest of the South Pole is both thrilling and fascinating. Taking into account that by that time the technologies available were minimal and that very little was known about the Antarctic, the journey that these courageous expeditioners embarked on is worthy of admiration. Antarctically cool.
Besides the conquest of the South Pole, the exhibition also presents the nature and wildlife of the Antarctic and its present, dedicated to science.
The exhibition is open until April 3, 2016.
