15th April - 15th April

Meet Sir Ernest Shackleton!

Sorry, you missed the boat!
This is an archived event, but there's others still boarding...

Join us to hear the chilling tale from Shackleton himself* and immerse yourself in our icy world here at the award-winning Shipwreck Treasure Museum.

On Good Friday, 15th April we’ll be joined by our favourite polar explorer himself, Sir Ernest Shackleton. You’ll find him navigating the museum and exploring our ice tunnels ready to tell you his tales of adventure for this special one-day event.

You’re invited on a quest to prove your own endurance in our polar tunnels and experience the chilling tale of daring feats and survival. This event may contain flashing lights and some slightly scary stories of polar peril.

It’s all included with standard museum entry so book your tickets now!

*it’s not really the real Sir Ernest Shackleton but an educational actor that will bring the legendary explorer’s tales to life
