RSS Discovery

Right next door to the V&A in Dundee is the fascinating Discovery Museum.

The RSS Discovery has two main claims to fame. First and foremost it was the ship that took the world reknowned artic explorers Captain Scott and Ernest Shackleton on their first expedition to Antartica in 1901.

Second she was the last traditional wooden three-masted ship to be built in the United Kingdom.

    Have a good day!
