What we offer on a school trip
Take a voyage with the early polar explorers Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton in search of an unknown world of snow and ice. Discovery Point is home to the RRS Discovery, the famous Dundee-built research ship which took Captain Scott to the Antarctic in 1901.
Aboard the ship, you will follow in the footsteps of Scott and his crew, see how they lived, what they ate and witness their hardships and their achievements; in the exhibition centre, audiovisual shows, computer interactives and displays of actual artefacts from the voyage tell the story of this heroic age of polar exploration.
