The exhibition has been created in partnership with the Antarctic Heritage Trust. It tells the story of Carsten Borchgrevink’s Southern Cross expedition. This was the first exhibition to the ice so it predated Scott.

Borchgrevink and his group of nine men were the first humans to spend the winter in Antarctica.

Their expedition was difficult, to say the least, and beset by challenges and disaster; One of the buildings caught fire and the zoologist Nicolai Hanson became ill and later died.

The Southern Cross expedition marked the start of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration that would see Scott, Ernest Shackleton, and Roald Amundsen venture onto the ice.
