The Royal research ship Discovery carried the 1901 National Antarctic Expedition, under the command of Robert Falcon Scott, to the Ross Sea, where it remained frozen in ice for two long winters while scientists explored Earth's last unknown continent. Today, the ship is the centrepiece of Dundee's Discovery Point Antarctic Museum, where guided tours, films and multimedia exhibits recreate what life was like for Scott, Ernest Shackleton and the other expedition members. Visitors explore the bridge, engine room, mess deck, crew's quarters and mahogany-panelled wardroom, while the new Forgotten Years gallery uses interactive activities to tell the Discovery story from 1905-1931, with additional exhibits specifically for schools on science, navigation, and marine conservation.
