Discovery Point from a new perspective!

Explore the latest addition to the museum – Discovery Dome. Be transported to 1901 by an immersive 360-view audio-visual experience over Dundee city and River Tay. Take in the breath-taking view from a formerly inaccessible upper cupola area, and re-discover RRS Discovery from a different, previously unseen perspective. Discovery Dome is home to the iconic suspended artwork ‘Gaia’ by renowned British artist, Luke Jerram. The larger edition of the artwork was the centrepiece of COP26 conference in Glasgow.

As you explore the self-led museum at your own pace you will:

  • Find out about ‘Scott of the Antarctic’ and explore the crews quarters and the Officers Wardroom
  • Discover more about the ships voyages and journeys after The Discovery Expedition
  • Discover the unique design features of the first ship built for scientific research in Antarctica
  • Learn about the first voyage of Discovery to the most inhospitable place on the earth

"One of the best museum/experience I've visited in a long time. The exhibition is very well laid despite the fact it was being rearranged at the time of our visit. You can spend as little or as long a time learning about this extraordinary ship. Then you have the ship itself. Amazing. You walk around it and it's not difficult to imagine how tough life on board must have been. "
