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.

Join us for a rare glimpse at a few of these specimens and listen to the incredible stories of the men who collected them.
