Shackleton: Escape from Antarctica


It’s one of the greatest survival stories of all time and now, over 100 years later, a new panel display on tour from the Australian National Maritime Museum invites visitors to walk in the footsteps of famous Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and discover his epic voyage of survival for themselves.

Shackleton: Escape from Antarctica, brings together first-hand accounts and dramatic images by official expedition photographer Australian Frank Hurley to tell the compelling story of Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914-17 and his bid to stay alive.

Shackleton: Escape from Antarctica is a touring exhibition developed by the Australian National Maritime Museum. 


Exhibition on Display:
