Race to the End of the Earth recounts one of the most stirring tales of Antarctic exploration: the contest to be the first to reach the South Pole in 1911-1912. The exhibition focuses on the challenges that two competing explorers—Norwegian Roald Amundsen and Captain Robert Falcon Scott of the British Royal Navy—faced as they undertook their 1,800-mile journeys from the edge of the Ross Ice Shelf to the Pole and back.
