Scott, Shackleton & Antarctic Photography

Don’t miss this remarkable exhibition of early Antarctic photography. Herbert George Ponting’s extraordinary images record Scott’s Terra Nova expedition of 1910 – 1913 and Frank Hurley’s dramatic icescapes were taken during Ernest Shackleton’s polar expedition on Endurance in 1914-16.

Presented to King George V and today part of the Royal Photograph Collection, these images are among the finest examples of the artists’ work in existence. Canterbury Museum is the only venue for this exhibition outside the Queen’s galleries.

Antarctic artefacts from Canterbury Museum’s collection complement the photographs, along with a small display of memorabilia that celebrates the special links between the royal family and Canterbury.

Admission: Adult $15, child $8 (under 5 free), concession $12, family (2 adults and 2 children) $40.
