Designed in Dundee in 1901 especially for scientific discovery missions, this vessel is the pride of Dundee. It was ordered by Captain Scott, during his expedition to the Antarctic (1901-1904). Today in dry dock, it is the main piece in an audio-visual exhibition devoted to his Antarctic trip and others.
