Hundreds of scientists brave its challenging conditions every year – but do you have what it takes to survive in Antarctica? 

In a frozen land thousands of miles away, scientists working in Antarctica face some of the most challenging conditions on Earth. This free family exhibition explores what it's like to live and work in this remote world.

Take part in hands-on activities as you discover how the region shapes our planet, learn about its wildlife, and find about the crucial research performed there.

See an emperor penguin chick, get up close to an Antarctic sea spider, and marvel at a sea urchin retrieved from Captain Scott's ship.

Based on Ice Station Antarctica, an exhibition organised by the Natural History Museum in collaboration with the British Antarctic Survey for International Polar Year 2007-2009.
