Discover your taste for adventure! Spectacular exhibits and special effects vividly recreate Scott's expedition to Antarctica.
Discovery Point is the home of RRS Discovery, the ship which was built to take Captain Scott on his first expedition to Antarctica. With audiovisual shows, computer-based multimedia and displays of the actual artefacts of the crew this award-winning visitor attraction transports you back in time to Antarctica in 1901. Learn about the men of Discovery and their amazing scientific discoveries then step aboard the ship to follow in the footsteps of these great explorers.
This is the story of Discovery from her beginnings in Dundee and Captain Scott’s remarkable Antarctic expedition, through her long ocean-going career until her final journey home. Find out about life on board and the essential design features that allowed her to survive the extreme polar conditions. Explore Discovery for yourself with an area-by-area tour of the ship.
