In the early nineteenth century, many men risked their lives striving for the North Pole and the fabled Northwest Passage.
Their journeys were often horrific as they were forced to battle extreme conditions. Nevertheless they carried out scientific research and collected specimens, some of which are kept here at the Museum.
