Scott Base

Explore and interact with incredible tales of life in the coldest place on earth!

Explore and interact with tales of life in the coldest place on earth! A walk-through replica of Captain Robert Falcon Scott's Antarctic hut complete with authentic memorabilia offers a glimpse at what it was like to live 100 years ago in the coldest place on Earth.

Our replica goes great lengths to ensure you are transported to a place that is quite literally frozen in time!

Check out the food that Scott and his men transported all the way down to the ice (e.g. cans of curried rabbit), touch the reindeer sleeping bags they used to stay warm at night, and see the various items they took for entertainment such as a Pianola!
