Discovery Point & RRS Discovery

Come face to face with the ‘Heroes of the Ice’ and experience what life was like for Captain Scott and his crew as they made their historical voyage to Antarctica. A visit to Discovery Point takes you on an adventure with Scott, Shackleton and the men of the heroic age of exploration. Take a journey through the exhibition areas where you will see how Royal Research Ship Discovery was created, built and returned to Dundee. With interactives and film shows you will see the work and love bestowed on one of the greatest sailing vessels of our time. After wandering through the exhibition, board this historical ship and roam freely around, above and below deck where you will sense the drama of the epic voyage to Antarctica and see how much thought went into its construction. Wander around the ships mess deck where the crew lived for the 2 years they were stuck in ice, marvel at the grandeur of the Officers quarters in the sumptuous Wardroom and explore the ships galley, engine rooms and food stores. Relax in the friendly atmosphere of the Café and browse around the well stocked Gift Shop for a day out with a difference visit Dundee and Discovery Point, truly a day to remember.
