Video Walkthrough of Race to the End of the Earth

Race to the End of the Earth, the major new exhibition now open at the American Museum of Natural History, recounts one of the most stirring tales of the Heroic Age of Antarctic exploration: the contest to be the first to reach the South Pole in 1911-1912. The exhibition focuses on the challenges that the two leaders -- Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen and British Royal Navy Captain Robert Falcon Scott -- faced as they undertook their 1,800-mile journeys from the shores of the Ross Sea to the Pole and back. Race to the End of the Earth also spotlights modern scientific exploration in the Antarctic and the latest research on this unique continent. Photographs, paintings, videos, vivid dioramas, hands-on activities, and rare historical artifacts from this Heroic Age give visitors a feel for the remarkable story of Antarctic exploration and research during the past century.
