  • My husband loves anything about Antarctic exploration. I don't like the cold. But this was really great, a replica of a hut decorated from photos of the original, there is a basket sitting on a beam because there was one in the photo etc. So many little details, like the menu on the wall...not penguin again? Well worth a visit.
  • Great staff who take the time to explain the importance Hobart has played in exploring the Antarctic.
  • Best attempt at genuine replica
  • Ok
