SHACKLETON EXHIBITION - AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM - UNTIL 6 APRIL 2016

Shackleton: Escape from Antarctica is a special exhibition at the Australian National Maritime Museum about Anglo-Irish adventurer Sir Ernest Shackleton, who saved all 28 men aboard the doomed ship Endurance, in what Sir Edmund Hillary described as 'the greatest survival story ever undertaken'.

In October 1914, Shackleton left Buenos Aires aiming to be the first to cross Antarctica’s vast and unexplored interior. On the other side of the South Pole, Aeneas Mackintosh left Tasmania for the Ross Sea (with four Australians on board), aiming to lay supplies for Shackleton's ambitious crossing. When the two parties became trapped in the ice, a tale of adventure, bravery and resilience began.
