The Polar Museum

Another Museum of Cambridge University, this time the Scott Polar Research Institute. I was asked to photograph The Polar Museum to provide images that would help promote their unique collection of artefacts and other materials illustrating polar exploration, history and science. In particular the Scott Polar Research Institute Museum building and interior displays being enjoyed by visitors of all ages.

The museum contains not only the history of Scott’s tragic expedition but also early explorers who ventured in to the unknown Arctic regions. The exhibits follow a logical path and give one a meaningful sense of what those intrepid men endured in that forbidden area of the world. It’s fairly small but well worth a visit.
