'Scott's Last Expedition' opened on the 20th January 2012 marking the centenary of Captain Robert Falcon Scott reaching the South Pole and his tragic death.
At the heart of the exhibition is a representation of the interior of Scott’s hut which still stands in Antarctica today. In the centre of the hut is a table where the main activities of the team took place. A projection onto the surface of the table, created by Newangle, shows some of those activities. Visitors can see the table laid for the last festive meal with seal soup on the menu or covered in maps and scientific specimens collected.
Another projection shows the race between Scott and Amundsen to reach the pole.
