About The 1902 Great Scottish Antarctic Expedition
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
In 1902 a team of young explorers set off from Riddle's Court in Edinburgh to map and better understand the Antarctic. Building their own ship, they docked over a rough winter, conducting numerous revolutionary experiments and set up the first Antarctic Met station. Join us in the very rooms in which they first met as we travel back in time to help address the challenges they faced along the way.
Children must be accompanied by an adult to help guide between challenges.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The 1902 Great Scottish Antarctic Expedition are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
