Race to the End of the Earth

Experience one of the most dramatic tales in exploration. Two South Pole-bound explorers, the Englishman Robert F. Scott and the Norwegian Roald Amundsen, led teams through harrowing conditions against a ticking clock. Who would reach the pole first? And would either make it home?

This exhibition brings history to life, and explains how these dangerous journeys paved the way for modern day polar research, ranging from geology to oceanography to astrophysics.

Race to the End of the Earth is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York, in collaboration with Musée des Confluences, Lyon, France, and Royal BC Museum, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
