Discovery Point, Dundee

(4.5/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Learn more about the story of one of the bravest expeditions of the 20th century at Discovery Point. Climb aboard Discovery, the original ship Captain Scott and Ernest Shackleton sailed to the Antarctic in 1901. A guided tour will take you above and below deck, and show you the original navigation system. Multimedia displays made of sculptures, photos, and computer-based art illustrate how the crew lived, what they ate, and how they passed their time. Learn about the crew's hobbies through artifacts such as letters, watercolors, and card games. Although the crew of the Discovery rationed out their food supply, you can enjoy a meal at Cafe at the Point. Check out the gift shop, which sells Dundee-edition Monopoly. The ship is wheelchair accessible. Use our Dundee tourist route planner to add Discovery Point and other attractions to your Dundee vacation plans.

  • Look like an interesting place to visit but as we was only passing did not have time to view the museum or the ship and it was not worth the cost just for a quick look.
