Really enjoyable visit to the Discovery - plenty to see inside the museum before going on board, which was really interesting with the cabins etc

The exhibit is fun and informative. Lots of fun things for the kids to do, and tonnes of detail for the adults.

Dundee in Scotland is very fortunate to have back this fantastic piece of nautical history. Well worth a visit to satisfy the historian in you... And right next the the new V&A Museum, so you can kill two birds with one stone..!

The exhibition and the ship itself give you a real feel for the hardships these men endured - all in the name of science. Take your time and go through the dioramas and other exhibits before marvelling at how people could spend months or years...More
