Antarctica: Life in a hostile land

About

Antarctica: Life in a hostile land, offers a thrillingly interactive experience with a combination of prized historic exhibits and modern day technology that will allow you to become immersed in the wonders of the Antarctic continent.

The exhibition gives you the opportunity to explore the changes in human relationships with Antarctica and its inhabitants from the early 1900’s, right up to the important scientific research conducted there today.

Features in the exhibition include a 360° virtual reality experience of Halley VI – the UK’s second largest research facility in Antarctica, original film footage, equipment from Antarctic expeditions including a tent and sledge, an outfit worn by a member of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s epic 1914-17 expedition and photos from celebrated wildlife photographer Ben Osborne.

This exciting exhibition has been developed in partnership with the British Antarctic Survey, Scott Polar Research Institute, National Museum of Wales, The Severn Partnership Ltd, and Orangeleaf Systems Ltd.

Tickets for Antarctica can purchased on arrival at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery from the Visitor Information Centre or by calling 01743 258885.
